"We clergy ought not to flatter ourselves, as if our clerical vocation somehow placed a greater burden upon our backs than the challenge that taking up the cross and following Jesus holds for any disciple" (9)/

These words, from the first paragraph of the introduction, indicate the unconventional wisdom of William H. Willimon. He turns many of the common perspectives about the life of the pastor on their head. For another example, consider his thoughts on burnout:

"The great ethical danger for clergy is not that we might "burn out," to use a metaphor that is popular in our time, not that we might lose the energy required to do ministry. Our danger is that we might "black out," that is lose consciousness of why we are here and who we are called to be for Christ and his church" (21).

In every page of Calling and Character, Willimon reminds clergy of "why we are here and who we are called to be" (21). The call to ministry is a high calling. Rather than waste time lamenting the "pedestal" we're sometimes placed upon, clergy should buck up and wear the mantle. To nuance that metaphor, it is incumbent upon clergy to develop a virtuous character so the mantle actually fits.

Richard B. Hays used three biblical images to frame his ethics: community, cross, and new creation. Willimon uses this threefold framework to develop his ministerial ethics. Clergy are those people "who embody Christian community, cross, and new creation in their lives" (59).

You may agree wholeheartedly with everything Willimon has to say—or not. Regardless of your position on the various issues, Willimon will challenge you to examine your life and practice in light of a high clerical vision. ( )

Willimon's book is similar to several other books he has written on the topic of ordained ministry. He makes some good points and has some good illustrations within the structure of community, cross and new creation (which he borrows from Richard B. Hays Moral Vision of the New Testament). Willimon is a good partner in trying to understand what the pastoral calling is about, but especially if you stop before the final chapter it sets a very tough standard for ordained leaders (the grace flows more freely in the final chapter using the image of new creation).
