As increased pension costs mean fewer paid priests, Anglican churches looking to the future will be less able to rely on having a traditional paid parish priest and will increasingly depend on lay as well as ordained ministry. The range of ministry opportunities, lay and ordained, in the Church is surprisingly wide and this new volume explores each in turn - stipendiary and non-stipendiary priest, reader, ordained local minister, youth leader, evangelist, music director, children's worker, pastoral visitor and more. "Diverse Gifts" will be a first port of call for all who are considering their vocation, as well as for parish teams looking to build up the life of the church by nurturing the gifts of its members.

'It is easy to read with little academic jargon or pedantic footnotes and there is a helpful glossary of terms. The title and sub-title are well chosen. As Saint Paul told the Corinthians, there are varieties of gifts but the same spirit, varieties of services but the same Lord, varieties of activities but the same God who activates all of them in everyone. With this in mind, those involved in, or training for, any kind of ministry should find it a useful resource.' -- David Bunch Quarterly Review of the Community of the Resurrection
