An anthology of reflections on the tasks, joys and challenges of ordained ministry, written by the most influential classical and contemporary thinkers.

According to William Willimon, a "cloud of witnesses" surrounds those in ordained ministry, forebears from whom today's ministers could learn if they had the opportunity to listen. The challenges and joys of ministry are not new; they have been present since the first Christian congregations began. From the age of the church fathers and mothers, into the Middle Ages, through the Reformation, and down to the present, faithful leaders of the Christian church have contemplated, debated, laughed, and prayed about the life of ordained leadership. In this new volume Willimon brings together the best voices from twenty centuries of Christian pastors and leaders, introducing what they have to say on the tasks and roles of ministry.

This volume is a companion to Willimon's Pastor: The Theology and Practice of Ordained Ministry
