Prolific author and Christian personality Dorothy Patterson offers A Handbook for Ministers' Wives for women who are in the challenging role of being married to men who serve in ministry positions.

It also speaks definitively to the ministry of community a minister's wife herself is called to in the civic and church arenas.
