"The clergy are the churches' greatest single resource, economically and strategically. Yet all too often they are neither looked after properly not do they look after themselves. This study, based on thorough research, sets out the most important strategies for pastoral support that could be -- and in some places already are -- happening. The renewal of ministry is key for both clergy and laity, and ideas here present an urgent agenda for the church ministering to an increasingly post-modern world". -- back cover.
