Imagination and Pastoral Ministry

I have been reading and thinking a great deal about the role of the imagination in pastoral ministry.  Over the last six months I have read several interesting books.  I have listed these below, and I have been noting the various theories of the imagination.  In time I will look forward to seeing what kind of fruit will grow.  There are more books, to be sure, but the following have provided food for thought.
The Prophetic Imagination, 2nd Edition

Imagining God: Theology and the Religious Imagination

Texts Under Negotiation: The Bible and Postmodern ImaginationThe Symbolic Imagination: Coleridge and the Romantic Tradition (Studies in Religion and Literature, 3)God and the Creative Imagination
