Developing in Ministry
Handbook for effective Christian learning and training
by Neil Evans
Publisher:SPCK (Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge)
Growth and openness to challenge and development is vital to healthy pastoral leadership.
Neil Evans offers a robust and engaging volume in the SPCK Library of Ministry series. It seeks to apply learning and training to development with a clearest application for Anglican clergy. There is insight, functionality and context strongly explored in this dense new title.
There is particular wisdom in the culture and communities that are engaged with. Scripture, story and service are well tied together also. There is something for most in this title, and with much value in application.
With a light academic touch, this workbook format in content will doubtless go on to be a reference book of much helpfulness for many a study long into the future. This is thoroughly practical and gently provocative.
