Pastor - Reader in Ordained Ministry Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the great sources of discouragement for those in ordained ministry is the perception that they are alone. The challenges and difficulties they face seem all the larger for their frequent lack of mentors and friends with whom to discuss them, and from whom to learn. Yet, according to William H. Willimon, a ''cloud of witnesses'' surrounds those in ordained ministry, forebears from whom they could learn if they had the opportunity to listen. The challenges and joys of ministry are not new; they have been present since the first Christian congregations began. From the age of the church fathers and mothers, into the Middle Ages, through the Reformation, and down to the present faithful leaders of the Christian Church have contemplated, debated, laughed, and prayed about the life of ordained leadership. In this new volume Willimon brings together the best voices from 20 centuries of Christian pastors and leaders, introducing what they have to say on the tasks and roles of ministry. A companion to Willimon's Pastor: The Theology and Practice of Ordained Ministry, this volume will serve as as a guide to all who week the wisdom of those who have followed the call to ordained ministry before them.
