How do we align biblical understandings of pastoral ministry with cultural expectations…Can we?
One of the books I have listed on my “Reading” page is David Rohrer’s new book, “The Sacred Wilderness of Pastoral Ministry”(IVP). I found this book to be incredibly insightful and refreshing. The author takes his cue from the life and work of John the Baptist, and creates a model of pastoral work that is life giving.
Every pastor, soon to be pastor, and church leader should read this book. Then talk about it with each other!
Here is a link to a great review of the book at Christianity Today. http://www.christianitytoday.com/le/2012/summer/prophetinpulpit.html
