Sister's Guide to Survive and Thrive in Ministry


From the best-selling author of Sister to Sister: Devotions for and from African American Women comes The Sister's Guide to Survive & Thrive in Ministry.

Previously published as The Sister's Rules for Ministry, this newly revised and expanded book offers 10 practical guidelines for women called to ministry. From the pragmatic to the devotional, these rules provide female pastors and women called to other ministries with practical wisdom for succeeding in a male-dominated vocation, with grace, integrity, and style. Compact, conversational, and compelling, this little volume is indispensable for any woman who wants to serve God faithfully—and with flair!

Drawing from her personal experiences in the religious, social justice and political realms, trailblazer Suzan D. Johnson Cook openly shares the challenges, successes, wisdom and insights that have carved he path through the years. A theologian, author, activist and academic, Cook has served as a pastor, presidential advisor and U.S. ambassador-at-large for International Religious Freedom.
