Overview

Young Clergy: A Biographical-Developmental Study employs Daniel Levinson's developmental theory, which emphasizes the importance of the professional development of young adults in their 20s and 30s to their careers. Using the biographies of five historical clergymen, Phillips Brooks, Jonathan Edwards, John Henry Newman, John Wesley, and Orestes Brownson, the book carefully maps the five career patterns of ministry during that time period in each life. The author presents psychological insights supported by solid biographical information on each minister's actions and reactions to challenges, illustrating how the theory holds relevance for young professional clergy even today.
