    1. This is an extremely helpful exploration of the theology and practice of ministry Kathleen Cahalan is Roman Catholic, but her words are as appropriate for Protestants as Catholics She speaks of disciples the entire body of Christ that responds to the call of God to grow in faith and service and those called to ministry The latter are called and affirmed and equipped to guide and equip those who respond to the call of discipleship Key is her definition of ministry being expressed in six practices [...]


    2. Required reading for a fifth year class in course of study which is interesting in that so much of this book talks about being new to or exploring entering ministry.


    3. I m very glad I read it The book makes the clearest case I ve come across for Christian people to see their lives, their vocations, as their callings She is is much explicit than any I know of the way in which Christian ministry is the calling of those who are clergy and should NOT be put on a higher plane by calling everyone s work ministry than the vocations of any other person Her insights are true and important I would want to sharpen up some of her argument particularly about the social mi [...]


    4. This job does a great job of defining and explaining the role of minister and disciple It will help anyone understand if they are discerning a call to ministers or service Wish I had been given this book when I was discerning my call It also doesn t directly call it out, but it really does define Word and Sacrament versus Word and Service.


    5. Readable and engaging, this book is very helpful for those discerning their call to ministry or other forms of leadership in the Church.
