This Odd and Wondrous Calling

The Public and Private Lives of Two Ministers
  • By Lillian Daniel, Martin B. Copenhaver
  • Foreword by Peter Gomes
Product Description
When it comes to ministry, there are plenty of books about how to do this work better---everything from church growth to fundraising to managing conflict to the latest small group technique.  There are books about what is difficult in ministry and the toll it can take.  There are books about the ministry from those who have left it behind.  This Odd and Wondrous Calling offers something different:  a book both honest about the challenges of the vocation and reflective of its joy from two people still pastoring.

Anecdotal and extremely readable, this book covers a diversity of subjects revealing the incredible variety of a pastor's day.  The chapters move from comedy to pathos, story to theology, scripture to contemporary culture.  This Odd and Wondrous Calling is both serious and fun and ideal for any who are either considering the ministry or want a better understanding of their own minister's life.

"Some pastors write about how they grew their churches," say Martin B. Copenhaver.  "Perhaps we are writing about how our churches have grown us."
