Resilient Pastors

Full Product Description

How can I help others to be strengthened during difficulties in life?

How can I cope when I’m overwhelmed with the demands of helping others?

Resilient Pastors is for anyone – ordained or lay – who asks these questions, particularly for those who live their lives in the context of Christian discipleship and ministry. Justine Allain-Chapman’s thoughtful book draws on the stories and themes of Christian theology and tradition, on contemporary research into resilience and the insights of psychology to help people make sense of the personal costs of pastoral care.

This book is an important resource for pastors, written to help them recognize the dynamics of developing their own resilience as well as enabling them to strengthen others. It is an essential guide to understanding how what is preached and taught in churches prepares people for life’s difficulties.

Resilient Pastors by Justine Allain-Chapman was published by SPCK in July 2012 and is our 12527th best seller. The ISBN for Resilient Pastors is 9780281063833.

"Original and thought-provoking for those in ministry, and those who train and support them. Resilience is needed to minister at challenging times." - The Rt Revd Christopher Lowson, Bishop of Lincoln

"This is a book to be read by anyone who is actively engaged in living, or helping others to live, with adversity. Struggling with life is not to be avoided, but embraced as an experience of the wilderness that can make us resilient and give us inner depth and strength. I heartily commend this exploration of the theme of resilience, drawing as it does on the wisdom of the Christian tradition which has so much to say to the world of today." - The Very Revd Dr Frances Ward, Dean of St Edmundsbury
