The cry for clarity : coaching vocational conversations about ministry leadership
MetadataShow full item record
This project encourages the practice of entering into coaching conversations with those who wrestle with God's call. Readers interested in vocational discernment for future ministry leadership will discover that vocational clarity for ministry leadership emerges within the community of faith. Foundational contributions come from H. Richard Niebuhr's four-fold definition of calling, the relational dialectic of Martin Buber, the theological anthropology of Karl Barth and the vocational views of Luther and Calvin. Readers will expand their vocational vocabulary, consider a method of evaluating future ministry leaders and be introduced to the ministry of a clearness committee, a practice used by the Society of Friends for over 400 years.
