Ministry in Disaster Settings: Lessons from the Edge studies the issues for clergy and church leaders during disasters. It is based on interviews with a number of ministry agents who cared for their communities during and after major tragedies. It seeks to understand what were the issues for them, including how they were affected, if and how they were cared for, and what lessons the church can learn in doing this work and caring for the carers. this is a valuable resource to all people involved in ministry, chaplaincy and caring for pastors and other religious helpers.
Ministry in Disaster Settings came second place in the 2007 Australian Christian Book of the Year Awards. Since that time it has been republished four times and continues to be a standard text in well-regarded ministry and chaplaincy training courses.
