In an engaging, personal style, The Making of an Ex-Minister details one man's journey to fulfill his call to Christian ministry. In 1953, unabashedly idealistic, 22-year old Tony Pal enters seminary in preparation for a life of service rooted in unconditional love, compassion and justice. But unlike his call, the institutions of school and church prove to be riddled with hypocrisy, fear and questionable ethics. Exploring his own insecurities along side studies of Kierkegaard and Francis of Assisi, Tony details the pain and poignancy of awakening to the failings of the church and his eventual decision to pursue his Christian calling outside the institution bearing its name.
