For Graduating seminary students, Stephen Sprinkle has written a practical theological guide for preparing for ordination in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), United Church of Christ, American Baptist Church, Presbyterian Church (USA), and other closely related denominations. He provides a theology of what ordination is and what it means to the person being ordained, to the life of the church at large, and to the congregation gathered for the celebration. Sprinkle includes "hands-on" practical guidance on how to plan the service, plus samples of ordination services from each of the four traditions.

Editorial Reviews

"Dr. Sprinkle has written the 'go-to' book on ordination in the Free Church traditions. Comprehensive and thoughtful, the book provides practical guidance, theological underpinnings, and a few challenges to the traditions. Yes, even Baptists will learn from pondering the reflections of this Disciples' scholar."
