This book celebrates the tradition of English Anglican ordained pastoral ministry. It also affirms the value, way of life and the great gift they have for relating to our communities and churches. Despite this, we stlil need to ask how the vicar can be better equipped to make prudent decisions about the way church ministry has to evolve.The vicar (parish priest, pastor, minister) still leads people in prayer and praise, cares for them in their sufferings and rejoices with them in their joys. This deep wisdom has sustained the Church for centuries, yet today the clergy are under the multiple pressures of secularisation, financial problems and profound cultural change and are being stretched as never before. In this book, the author writes from a personal perspective about the need for vicaring to be renewed and reformed. He notes his widespread experience from many angles in the Church that lie behind his thoughts. The book is in three parts: Part 1 lays some theological foundations; Part 2 explores the practice of vicaring; and Part 3 explores the qualities required of those who are vicars. He concludes with a theological reflection on "success" in ministry. In 244pp, with extensive end notes.
