Wow, this book, 'Clergy, Culture and Ministry' by Ian Tomlinson arrived across my desk at Unicorn Tree Books in Lincoln Central Market yesterday from @SCM_Press Now let me first confess I am not Clergy and so this book is not meant for me, and yet this book is incredibly insightful and interesting in helping me process how very hard it must be to be clergy with its constant expectations and role changes. In the 30 hours that have passed since this book arrived I have been devouring it! The insights work not only for clergy but for anyone with a complex occupation, or that works or engages closely with clergy. Tomlinson writes well and elucidates insightfully on the work of Wesley Carr so as to offer forward a strong work shedding light on the complexity and possibilities of being clergy in a world of competing expectations. A very good book and one many clergy may find helpful, but also one prospective clergy and ministers may like to consider too... As always this book and other good ones like it can be found in independent High street bookshop's like us here at Unicorn Tree Books in Lincoln Central Market, and I'd really encourage you to use them and buy your books from them so that they can survive and thrive in local communities. #book #books #bookshop #indiebookshop #christianbookshop #christianbooks #spirituality #faith #review #authors #publishers #buylocal #christian #theology #clergy #ministry #scmpress
