Foreword by Michael L. Lindvall

The distinguished contributors to this volume — ministers, scholars, and theological educators — share personal reflections on the sometimes-difficult transition from being a seminarian to becoming a minister. Based on their own life experiences, they address the two related but different “worlds” of theological school and ministry settings, each with its own set of expectations, values, challenges, focal points, and rewards.
