Riding the Dragon: 10 Lessons for Inner Strength in Challenging Timesby Robert J. Wicks
The lessons here are drawn from the themes presented by such spiritual guides as Henri Nouwen, Thomas Merton, and Abraham Heschel; from the contributions of eastern thinkers such as David Brazier, Jack Kornfield, Pema Chodron and others; and from Buddhist writers such as Sogyal Rinpoche. The long-lasting results will help all of us enjoy our lives more fully. The lessons will also have healing impact upon those with whom we interact -- no small gift in a world presently experiencing such dark times.

Easy to read and great insights caring for self while helping others in ministry. Robert Wicks stress the importance of self-care while under stress in ministry. Great bibliography at the end of the book for further study, reflection on this issue.
An excellent book -- offers practical guidance and pulls in profound spiritual insights. I recommend it for people dealing with a current tough situation, people who have gone through a rough patch in the past, and people who know from experience that a crisis can come at any moment. I have purchased several copies and given them away as gifts.
