JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 04, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- James Black, a Member of the American Association of Pastoral Counselors, was a Fellow in the College of Chaplains, and a Member of the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, has completed his new book "What I Wish I Had Learned in Seminary": an insightful and entertaining narrative that conveys the knowledge of an expectation-versus-reality viewpoint in ministry.

Author Black includes necessary information that helps its readers grasp the modern-day theological education: "Oh, be careful of the following: those who called you there (or you were forced to go there by your superior's wisdom) may just get what they thought they wanted but may find out later that you and they had different expectations of one another. Here is a typical example: I know a congregation who 'wanted, needed a strong leader.' Fair enough. But each one's definition of 'strong' differed. This new leader made all the decisions, even to the point of going against and doing other than what the council voted to do or have done. They let him get away with it to the point that the leadership were demoralized and wondered why they even took the time to go to meetings, discuss, and vote. After all, the pastor would do what he wanted to do anyway. This whole setup made it so hard on the leader that followed him."

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, James Black's intellectually invigorating account combines the author's honesty and humor in imparting an extensive analysis of today's ministerial work and how this invites avenues for more criticisms in faith and religiosity.

Readers who wish to experience this spiritual work can purchase "What I Wish I Had Learned in Seminary" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
