A team of experts in ministry and the Bible, offer skills for the long haul. They employ the Old Testament notion of covenant and ask ministers to enter a covenant both for their own self-care and as a key to framing and enlivening their care for others in ministry. True-to-life stories show how biblically based covenantal relationships with clear boundaries promote healthy relationships, and are integral to faithful personal and pastoral care.
