Four Ministries, One Jesus
Combining the skills of a leading biblical scholar with the wisdom derived from years of pastoral experience in guiding vocation and ordination training, Richard Burridge invites you to consider four key aspects of Christian ministry, as depicted in the gospels’ portraits of Jesus.
Based upon the latest Selection Criteria and ordination liturgies, this is essential reading for anyone exploring their own vocation or discerning other people's callings to all forms of ministry.

This is Richard Burridge at his best: combining practical wisdom, deep spirituality and inspiring scholarship.
Presenting Jesus as the exemplar for ministry, this welcome book blends a scholar’s attention to gospel texts with a priest’s insight into ordained life.
A wise and rich resource for those exploring vocation, deeply rooted in the realities of ministry and in the depths of the biblical tradition.
One of the very best books on Jesus, the gospels and ministry today . . . packed with treasure and wisdom.
What makes the book special is that it is grounded in four different “sources”…. It is the integration of all these factors which makes the book so good . . . The key question on my mind while reading the book to review it was this: “Do I wish that I had read this before?” The answer was a definite “Yes.”
