Format: Paperback
EUGENE PETERSON said: "This is the freshest and most honest book on pastoral work you're ever likely to come upon." I agree. Hansen helps us pastors consider what is essential for us to be pastors. Prayer, presence, scripture are central. Stories drawn from Hansen's contemplative fishing experiences help the reader appreciate the value of paying careful, quiet, patient attention in ministry. Not a "how to do it in X steps" book, but a book about being. This is a simple but deep book; it's hopeful and encouraging for a too busy pastor.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By G. Gilbert on May 6, 2004
Format: Paperback
I had to read this book for a Ministry Practice and Polity seminary class, and it was probably one of the most enjoyable books that I read in my whole seminary career.
At the most basic level, this is sort of a 'day in the life' kind of book about David Hansen's experience in the role of pastor. The book is refreshingly honest as he discusses his struggles, victories, and overall experience of being a pastor in all the different compacities. I don't plan on being a pastor myself, but I would definitly recommend this book to anyone who is feeling called in that direction, as a 'window into the life of a pastorate.'

Format: Paperback
I could say a lot about this book. A whole
lot in fact. But I am just going to say this:
if you are a pastor or a family member of a
pastor get this book! It is rich, deep,
honest, Christian, Christlike, and so much
more. I am glad it came across my path
and am thankful the author shared his life
with us.

Just as the description says, this book describes the day to day issues of being a pastor addressing the thought processes, the conflicts, the joys and challenges of ministry. As a prospective seminary student, I found it to be very encouraging and eye opening. Not only do I have the Kindle version, but I also got it in hard copy for my library.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was a fantastic book! Every church leader should take the time to read Pastor Hansen's work on pastoral ministry. He puts forth the theme we should be parables of Jesus and then delves into unpacking what that means. For a complete review of this and other books, please visit [...]
