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:
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
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.

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.
