More About this Book
The main concern of this book is the relationship between professionalism and spirituality in ministry. “There is today a great hunger for a new spirituality,” observes Nouwen, “a hunger that requires new and creative forms of ministry.” Separate chapters treat each of the five areas that Nouwen considers the primary responsibilities of the minister: teaching, preaching, counseling, organizing, and celebrating. He shows how these main functions are inextricably tied to the minister’s spiritual life.
Themes: Christian Leadership, Ministry, Pastoral Care, Spiritual Life, Teaching, Preaching, Counseling, Celebrating, Organizing
Praise for "Creative Ministry"
