Item description for Work Of The Chaplain (Work Of The Church) by Naomi Paget & Janet McCormack...
Overview Through the ages, multitudes of women and men have answered a call to Christian ministry. Not all of those who are called, however, are called to pastor a local congregation. Some feel led to the vital ministry outside the walls of the church as chaplains in diverse environments including hospitals, educational institutions, and military encampments during wartime. This book is for them.
The Work of the Chaplain is the ideal starting point for all who are exploring a call to chaplain ministry, including seminarians. As experienced chaplains themselves, the authors provide from a Christian perspective a concise history and biblical basis for chaplain ministry and carefully explain what makes chaplaincy unique. They provide specific guidance for the often unique areas to which chaplains are called to minister including:
parishes multi-religious settings disaster or first-response settings military bases at home and abroad hospitals and hospice care blue- and white-collar workplaces correctional facilities or prisons crisis intervention services law-enforcement agencies high schools and college or university campuses Learn how issues such as accountability, privacy, personal ethics, and spiritual assessment play an integral role in the success of a chaplain. And don't miss the advice the authors offer about health and empowerment issues for chaplains, emphasizing the importance of chaplains caring for themselves even while providing care for others.
Publishers Description The Work of the Chaplain is the ideal starting point for all?including seminarians?who are exploring a call to minister outside the walls of the church.

Reviews - What do customers think about Work Of The Chaplain (Work Of The Church)?
The Work of the Chaplain Apr 20, 2010
I absolutely love this book! It is very informative of what a chaplain is, a little bit of history, and the multiple ministry roles for chaplains, and chaplaincy pit falls. It is a no-nonsense book, and establishes what every chaplain should aspire to know on a philosophical level. It is Christian based, but it establishes the role of a chaplain. Very well done! It is a short book, not given to fluff, and every page is full of information including a good resource section.
Understanding the chaplaincy, for everyone Apr 3, 2010
Broadly comprehensive in its explanation and coverage of the many faceted role of the chaplain, The Work of the Chaplain sets forth clearly what is actually involved in the life of a chaplain in faithfully fulfilling his/her calling and mission within our polycultural world of today. The intrinsic blending of the personal, professional, secular, ecclesiastical --and frequently ad hoc-- amalgams and requirements in filling the role of the chaplain are all clearly drawn by the two authors, drawing upon and sharing their own personal deep and wide experience, in this very helpful and interesting book. I strongly believe The Work of the Chaplain is deserving of much wider readership than simply by those who are pursuing the religious career vocation of the formal, full-time chaplaincy.
