Product Description


This is an excellent book, which needs not only to be read but also to be kept as a source of reference in the practice of ministry --The Revd Kenneth Leech was formerly Community Theologian at St Boltoph's, Aldgate, in east London. CHURCH TIMES, 27 January 2006

This book has much to commend it. It is easy to read, insightful and practical. The tasks in each chapter are quite useful and do-able! And it is an important topic --Donald O'Neill, THE FURROW, April 2006

Ward refers to contemporary educational theories and supervision practices in various disciplines. He avoids becoming merely theoretical through weaving in case studies and worked examples of reflection and supervision throughout. He also provides frequent exercises for the reader to engage in, so that this has the potential to be used as a workbook rather than merely a reference work. Highly recommended to everyone involved in training and supervising people in ministry. --Sue Groom, ANVIL, Vol.23, No1, 2006

1.0 out of 5 stars Time wasted 3 May 2013
By Chris S
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
One of the most unintelligible and pointless books I’ve come across! It’s full of banal suggestions which I suggest are quietly accepted by the author, such as on p103 “The front cover of this book shows an image of a tree trunk that has been worn and cracked by the weather. The sunshine and shadows contribute to the texture. In what ways does it ‘work’ as an image of the content of this book?” Furthermore, it fails to address the title subject – ‘Lifelong Learning’.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lifelong Learning 28 Jan 2009
By Harold O'Neal Simpson - Published on
This book gave me a new perspective on ministry. To be able to look into those case studies of the lives of the other ministers was helpful. Engaging the journaling process was more effective for me this time than it was in my earlier class. I saw what I was doing and how it was affecting my ministry and the quality of it. In our ministries as pastors and administrators we make choices that affect our ministries, the Ward text really highlighted how this bears on our lives. This ia a book I will keep and refer to often.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lifelong Learning Review 20 Mar 2006
By Sandie G - Published on
At the points where there were examples of what was being written about, the book was fine; unfortunately there were places where fairly complex terminology was being used, and where an example or two of exactly what the words meant would have helped enormously.
