While there are many books that address burnout in ministry, there are few that speak to compassion fatigue. The book is divided into three parts. Part I, "The Beckoning Sea," explains the perils of ministry, the church as a family system, the difference between burnout and compassion fatigue, and risk factors for ministry leaders. In Part II, "Finding Your Stroke," the authors offer prevention advice for burnout, compassion fatigue, and managing church systems. Part III, "The Rescue," discusses the process of recovery beginning with rest and retreat, and the minister's renewed calling. The authors explain how intentionality, building resiliency, and finding connection bring healing. A chapter is dedicated to clergy families. Using the analogy of ocean swimming and the story of Jonah, a reluctant preacher, the authors weave a common theme through the narrative offering education, understanding, and hope while sharing the stories of ministry leaders who have survived the turbulent waters of pastoral caregiving.
