How can I balance family life and ministry? How do I gain control of my time? What if I want to leave the ministry?
Surviving Ministry uses questions, case studies, historical and biblical analysis to inform the public and private ethics of the parish minister. Topics include: ministry as a calling and a job, the minister's spirituality, stewardship of personal and family time, ministerial authority and leadership, shepherding, and prophetic ministry. This book combines theory and practice, useful to both practicing and prospective ministers. Few texts address both the public and private ethics of ministers.
