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. Topics include: a concise history and biblical basis for chaplaincy ministry, and a look at what makes this ministry unique; advice on health and empowerment to ensure chaplains take care of themselves while caring for others; and, specific guidance for the often unique areas which chaplains are called to minister. Naomi Kohatsu Paget is a board certified Chaplain with the Association of Professional Chaplains and crisis interventionist for the FBI, Southern Baptist Disaster Relief, and the American Red Cross. Janet Rae McCormack is a board certified chaplain with Association Chaplains and an American Baptist Churches USA minister.

This book was very good and full of great information, If I was not starting out so late in life, I think this would be the ministry I would go into.

Having recently completed a Chaplaincy course. This book covers in a nutshell what Chaplains are be ready for and ministering to all, not a specific denomination.
