The Sister's Guide To Survive & Thrive in Ministry
KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa. - May 31, 2019 - PRLog -- From the editor of the best-selling Sister to Sister: Devotions for and from African American Women (Judson Press, 1995) comes The Sister's Guide to Survive and Thrive in Ministry. Previously published as The Sister's Rules for Ministry, this newly revised and expanded book offers 10 guidelines for women who are answering God's call.

From the pragmatic to the devotional, these suggestions provide female pastors and women called to other ministries with wisdom for succeeding in a male-dominated vocation, with grace, integrity and style. Compact, conversational, and compelling, this little volume is indispensable for any woman who wants to serve God faithfully—and with flair!

Drawing from her personal experiences in the religious, social justice and political realms, trailblazer Suzan D. Johnson Cook openly shares the challenges, successes, wisdom and insights that have carved her path through the years. A theologian, author, activist and academic, Cook has served as a pastor, presidential advisor and U.S. Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom.

"The lessons shared in this book are important and will truly help you on your journey to not only strive but also thrive in ministry," says Vashti Murphy McKenzie, bishop of the African Methodist Episcopal Church and author of The Big Deal of Taking Small Steps to Move Closer to God.

Says the Rev. Dr. Barbara L. King, founder of Hillside International Truth Center, Atlanta, "Ambassador Sujay has always been committed to raising the voices of women leaders through her work as a pastor, author and faith leader to presidents Clinton and Obama. I highly recommend this book—a must-read."

The Rev. Dr. Marjorie Duncan Reed, pastor of St. Paul's Baptist Church, Conshohocken, Pa., adds, "This book has blessed me and continues to remind me to stay focused. Every sister in ministry needs this go-to book along the way."

The Sister's Guide to Survive and Thrive in Ministry is available for purchase at www.judsonpress.com.
