My disappointment was due to my misplaced expectations about the subject matter. After getting over that, I found the book full of practical guidance and reminders about what pastoral ministry is all about. It was very encouraging, and I expect that it will be helpful to the book's target audience: young seminarians who aspire to become vocational ministers at the conclusion of their studies. Pastoring is not just about preaching sermons and teaching Sunday school lessons. Pastoring is a relational job. It can become overwhelming, especially for young guys who've been sheltered from "normal life" living on a Christian campus for a few years. Men with experience who take time to write books like this are needed and welcome. Transitioning from student to pastor can be bumpy and fraught with failure for those who don't have good, godly men speaking into their lives. This book helps those seminarians wade into the responsibility of being a pastor.
I received this book from the publisher for the purpose of providing this review.
This is a book worth reading, even for those who have left their seminary years far behind. Because this book contains a wide range of topics for ministering God’s word to people, this book also would be good for those who hold the office of elder and for those who teach small groups or Sunday School.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
