Serving faithfully in one's current congregation while simultaneously going through the secretive process of looking for a new position is one of the most difficult dilemmas of any pastor's life. How should one respond to 'getting the itch'? Where is the line between keeping confidentialities and presenting one's credentials in the most favourable and realistic light? What are the consequences of being an active candidate?

Antal's companionable approach stimulates theological and spiritual reflection on matters of the most practical consequence, promotes self-understanding, and enhances ministry.
"This might be the most important book a minister consults during the seach process. Jim Antal deals forthrightly with the spiritual and ethical dimensions that lie beneath the logistics of the search process. He recognizes that simple rules are not enough; spiritual discernment of adequate behavior is necessary. Antal provides a 'guide for the perplexed,' not a 'how-to' book - yet his references put one in touch with the most relevant literature of that genre as well."
