American clergy are undergoing a health crisis. Why—and what can be done to help them? Drawing on research from Duke University’s Clergy Health Initiative, psychologist Rae Jean Proeschold-Bell and pastoral theologian Jason Byassee examine the data pertaining to the physical, mental, and spiritual well-being of nearly 1,800 ministers. Although the study focused on United Methodist ministers, the authors interpret the groundbreaking data for a broad ecumenical readership. Their surprising findings and concrete suggestions offer hope to overworked, stressed-out pastors.
