A Guide to Ministry Self-Care provides clergy with a thoughtful, well-researched, comprehensive, and practical design for the kind of personal self-care without which fruitful ministry is impossible. Pastors at all stages of their ministries will find a multitude of ways to enhance their lives and work. -- Lovett H. Weems, Jr., distinguished professor of church leadership, Wesley Theological Seminary
