"What are the spiritual resources of ministers ? .... What allows them to preach and teach, counsel and celebrate with a continuing sense of wonder, joy, gratitude, and praise ? These are the questions of this book. They concern the relationship between the professional and the personal life of those who want to work in the service of the Gospel. They call for a careful exploration of the connections between the ministry and spirituality". -- Prologue.
