The Testing of Vocation - 100 years of ministry selection in the Church of England - by Robert Reiss 2013 marks the centenary of the Church of England's established process for selecting candidates for ordained ministry - a process that the Ministry Division still uses today.

It explores in detail the Church of England's concept of vocation and how it has developed in response to changes in society, from the aftermath of two world wars and declining numbers, to the ordination of women and the advent of non-stipendiary ministry.
