Many professional ministers struggle at some point with the desire to pursue another career. For those at such a place on their journey, this book poses questions, offers practical suggestions gathered from other ministers who have traveled this path, and shares insights from the authors' own experiences of career change.

The authors emphasize two principles. First, entertaining the possibility of leaving professional ministry is not to be condemned or viewed as a sign of failure; rather, it should be accepted as part of the spiritual journey. Second, a new career apart from the institutional church does not mean one is leaving the ministry, but simply that one is changing the mode of expressing that ministry.
"Are you facing the challenge of re-visioning your call to ministry? Do you companion others who are facing this challenge? If so, this book will be a gift to you. Written by two ministers who had to re-vision their own calls to ministry in order to remain deeply faithful, this book is filled with psychological and spiritual wisdom which is presented in a down-to-earth and practical way. All who strive to be true to themselves and their call to ministry are sure to find themselves confirmed, challenged, and sustained in these pages."
Marie McCarthy, Ph.D. , Center for Religion and Psychotherapy of Chicago
