Many Friends found Brian Drayton's 2005 edition of On Living with a Concern for Gospel Ministry a valuable resource and source of encouragement. In this revised and expanded edition, Brian adds a decade and a half of new research and insights to his original work. The book draws on Brian's experience, as well as Quaker history, to delve into the multiple facets of public ministry. An essential guide for Friends and others with a primary calling of vocal ministry, this book also speaks to those engaged in long-term service under concern. His accumulated wisdom, thoughtful analysis and personal experience of giving and receiving ministry make him an ideal person to share information and encouragement with contemporary Friends, most especially those with a call to vocal ministry and those supporting them.
