A New, Practical Guide for Pastoral MinistrySeptember 30, 2015
by Kent Hughes
When Dr. Lane Dennis, president of Crossway Books, asked me to consider authoring what is now The Pastor’s Book: A Comprehensive and Practical Guide to Pastoral Ministry, I was intrigued, but unsure of what course to follow. So in the following weeks, I began to reflect over my forty-plus years of pastoral ministry and upon those responsibilities that filled my week, as well as my duties on the Lord’s Day. When Doug O’Donnell agreed to serve as contributing editor, my thinking was enlarged.
Having been busy pastors during our tenures, we hope to encourage and enhance the gospel ministries of our fellow busy pastors with the rich theology and resources that have sustained our own ministries. Thus, we have worked together to create a go-to resource that stands on the shoulders of those who have gone before, is theologically informed, and is crammed full of examples and ideas from which a pastor can selectively cull with an eye to elevating not only the weekly ministry of the Word in both contemporary and traditional settings, but the day-to-day pastoral ministry of the gospel.
