In 1985, What They Don't Teach at Harvard Business School became a blockbuster bestseller because it offered proven-effective, "school of hard knocks" advice--not just classroom theories--to business people.

Now, What Ministers Can't Learn in Seminary does the same thing for beginning and experienced pastors and seminarians.  In bright, optimistic, good-humored language, R. Robert Cueni takes us step-by-step through the predictable crises of early ministry.  He discusses the realities of congregational life, the difference between normal tensions and critical problems, and dozens of other problem areas.  He also shows how to find a way through the maze of expectations held by church members.

What Ministers Can't Learn in Seminary is distilled wisdom at its very best, offered with vigor and compassion--realistic about the church and highly affirmative of ministry.
