After providing an overview of the work, the author provides the requirements for chaplaincy in the military, healthcare, workplace, prison, campus, sports, and first-responder. If you are considering chaplaincy as a career choice, these chapters are full of advice on how to become qualified and what the work might entail.
The section on preparing for the job is wonderful. The author describes what you must BE to fit the job. Details on responsibility, accountability, ethics, and legal aspects are all covered. Also covered are ways to get a job, keep that job, find associations, education, and much more.
Overall, this is great book for those interested in becoming or working with a chaplain of any denomination.
