This is a print on demand book and is therefore non- returnable.

A compelling, insightful account of ministry arising out of the author's wealth of personal experience. Neuhaus addresses the awkwardness (both necessary and liberating) of Christian ministry, discusses the minister as worship leader and as preacher, and deals with some of the more common moral dilemmas of ministry (with particular reference to ambition, sexuality, and money).
