Item Description...
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:

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. Unlike most other books in this field which are specific to one form of chaplaincy and are often written from an autobiographical viewpoint only, this new resource meets a critical need for an introductory and overview look at chaplaincy in general.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
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.
An absolute "must-have" for anyone interested in becoming a professional chaplain  Jan 6, 2007
Written by Naomi K. Pagnet and Janet R. McCormack, both of whom are board certified with the Association of Professional Chaplains, The Work of the Chaplain is a straightforward and specific guide for the multireligious areas in which chaplains minister. Chaplaincy in the military, prisons, health-care professions, the workplace, and much more are all covered, as well as common "minefields" for anyone in the profession, how to prepare oneself for chaplain work, anecdotes of chaplains seeking to aid those in greatest distress, and much more. An absolute "must-have" for anyone interested in becoming a professional chaplain, and a useful resource of practical and tested advice for practitioners in the field.
