This review is from: The Preacher's Payday: How faithfulness echoes in eternity (Ministry Mission) (Paperback)
The Preacher's Payday is a basic examination of the eteranal rewards that will be handed out from the Bema seat at the Final judgment, and the author gives particular attention to the judgment of Bible teachers and pastors, who, as he shows from Scripture, will experience a stricter judgement but potentially greater reward. As a layman, I found this book to be encouraging and convicting. Archer has a tremendous ability with words and shows great skill with the use of word pictures. Clint also links faithfulness to the Scripture with expository preaching and spends the last few chapters giving a basic introdution to what expository preaching is and how to do it. For those who are not familiar with expository preaching you will find these chapters helpful as they deal with some of the basics. For pastors who already exposite Scripture, you will find this to be a useful refresher and may even glean some ideas from Clint. The author has done a great service by providing a select bibliography at the end of the book which takes up a little over four pages. I fully recommend this book to pastors and laymen alike, those who teach and those who don't. As Clint mentions, there is much confusion over the Bema seat, mainly because there has been little written about it. This book is an excellent primer on the subject, but it's main purpose is to encourage pastors and elders in faithfulness to Christ.
