Book Recommendation…for the pastor’s soul

Although we may not see it this way, pastoral ministry is a dangerous calling.  This is why Paul Tripp has done us a great service by writing specifically on this issue.  Tripp in his new book, Dangerous Calling, pulls both from his early pastoral failures as well as his intense ministry to pastors now to address the unique challenges pastors face.

This book accomplishes a very rare, but needed objective.  It forces true, transparent heart work for the pastor, something hard to find in books today.  I found my own heart stirred to examination.  Every pastor and aspiring one should read this book to assure we are faithful to walk with Christ as we strive faithfully to serve Christ.

    This book devastated me! As my wife and I read it and studied it together, she told me that it was really describing me. As a result of the things I have learned and am learning I am now taking a sabbatical after 30 years of ministry. I am praying for renewal. I seriously recommend this book to every pastor regardless of how new or old in the ministry. Ask your elders/ church boards to read it as well. Thank you Paul Tripp.
