Format: Paperback
This book was given to me as a gift for Christmas, from my father. Little did I realize how much I would like this book too. Even though I received the paperback, since I did not have a Kindle yet, I have highlighted a lot in the book, to reference later on.

I began reading Practical Wisdom For Pastors on Saturday morning, June 26th during both of our flights from New York to Kansas. Sunday I did not read, but did finish the book over Monday and Tuesday and I think the total time it took to read 272 pages of this book was approximately 8 hours, which is probably the fastest I've ever read a book too.

I hope that many seminarians will consider having this book in their library and one that will be easily accessible and referred to often. This book would especially be helpful for those seminarians that are preparing for an internship within a local church too.

My only regret is that I didn't read this book sooner because I've been serving as a pastoral intern since January 2010. I'm glad I have it now and look forward to reading some of the other books that are recommended by the author.

Format: Paperback
This is a must for ministers starting out in ministry. It deals with a lot of subjects that you deal with in ministry. From preaching to counseling to how you dress, it deals with most things inexperienced pastors don't know about. Great book. Highly recommend.

Format: Paperback
I used this book as a resource when writing a term paper, and it was great! It is also a good resource for pastors, ministers and evangelist who are going into ministry.
