Though ministry has always changed, adapting to time and place, the pace of change has now increased. This shift in pace has resulted in a greater need for success and less tolerance of diversity, as well as an impoverished theology and neglect of our own history and tradition.

In The Pattern of Our Calling, David Hoyle explores the changing theologies of ministry during the church's history with the aim of challenging the lack of theological reflection in some of today's results-driven understanding of ministry that seems more influenced by the business world than by Christian theology and tradition.

Setting out to explain why theologians said what they said about ministry, why it might matter, and why it might be exciting, Hoyle covers nearly two thousand years of theological reflection from the Didache to Michael Ramsey and current writers, and provides a synthesis not found anywhere else. This book offers realistic sustenance to practitioners struggling with the new demands on clergy.
