Books for Pastors...
Pastoring and pain go together. If you are involved in pastoral leadership then you will experience the barbs of criticism, the grief of your own sin, and the loneliness of leadership. Biblical counsel from wise brothers, therefore, is essential.
If you are a pastor then you ought to have the following books on regular rotation for your yearly reading:
New Life in the Wasteland by Douglas Kelly
The Cross and Christian Ministry by D.A. Carson
Pastors Under Pressure by James Taylor
The Roots of Endurance by John Piper
The Call to Joy and Pain by Ajith Fernando
Under the Unpredictable Plant by Eugene Peterson
