How can I help others to be strengthened during difficulties in life? How can I cope when I'm overwhelmed with the demands of helping others? Resilient Pastors is for anyone - ordained or lay - who asks these questions, particularly for those who live their lives in the context of Christian discipleship and ministry. Justine Allain-Chapman's thoughtful book draws on the stories and themes of Christian theology and tradition, on contemporary research into resilience and the insights of psychology to help people make sense of the personal costs of pastoral care. This book is an important resource for pastors, written to help them recognize the dynamics of developing their own resilience as well as enabling them to strengthen others. It is an essential guide to understanding how what is preached and taught in churches prepares people for life's difficulties.

She is a regular conference and retreat speaker on the topic of resilience and Christian discipleship.
