    As is normally the case in volumes featuring various contributors, some of these chapters are better than others, but this book is very helpful in simply reminding pastors that what is demanded of them is not necessarily what is required of them The book focuses on requirements you would expect being a shepherd, preacher, theologian, and leader , but also includes one I wouldn t expect being a church historian I found it refreshing that the book included no call to the pastor to be a visionary, therapist or social activist These tasks have their proper place, but so often their inflated importance obscures the essential tasks that are unique to pastoral calling, yet often regarded as ineffective by the world As Os Guinness once said Whenever I meet a Buddhist leader, I meet a holy man Whenever I meet a Christian leader, I meet...

    When Thom Rainer says in the introduction of a book that it would be pastoral malpractice to not read a book, you read it That book that he is referring to is Portraits 9780802416346of a Pastor The 9 Essential Roles of a Church Leader, edited by Jason K Allen and published by Moody Publishers Jason K Allen is the president of Midwestern Baptist Seminary where he has served since 2012 In bringing nine ministry leaders together to write individual essays in this book, he answers the questions of what a pastor is to be and do.The first chapter was written by Jared C Wilson, who holds several titles and responsibilities for Midwestern Baptist Seminary He challenges the pastor to take up his role as a shepherd I found the chapter challenging and comforting Challenging in that he lays out in this chapter what a shepherd does and pretty much says that if you are not doing these things you re not just a poor shepherd, but you re not a shepherd It is encouraging in that he reminds us that our righteousness is in Christ Jesus and not in ourselves That was a blessed thought to me as sometimes I deal with insecurity in my own life.Chapter 2 was penned by Daniel L Akin, president of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary since 2004 and Professor of Theology and Christian Preaching since 1999 He was given the task of speaking into the pastor s heart concerning his role as husband and father Akin grabs your heart when he poses this quest...

    Being a pastor is a burdensome job Too often a pastor has to wear many hats and he ends up spread too thin, whether these duties are demanded by the congregation or are self imposed Either way, the result is often burnout physical, emotional, and spiritual Add to this the secularized culture that we live in, the lack of confidence in the church and the Word, and the demotion of the importance of the pastorate, and you can begin to see the struggles that they face on a daily basis This short, powerful book discusses nine different roles and expectations a pastor experiences preacher, leader, missionary, evangelist, man of God, theologian, church historian, shepherd, father, and husband Each topic is authored by a different evangelist so that you get many different perspectives The chapters are both biblical and practical, designed to help the pastor to faithfully, and effectively, serve the local church with clarity and purpose This book highlights the joys and struggles of being a pastor, as well as the great honor that co...

    Pastors, we need this book The nine key roles of our work are beautifully discussed in this outstanding volume By taking these nine traits we can re calibrate to what the Lord intended us to be All the things that are not on the list are almost as instructive as the nine that are Pastors who have a different nine main spheres of work need to do some soul searching If that happens to be the case, this is the perfect book for you Even if you already agree that these are the main nine areas of the ministry that God has given you, you have here the reminder you may be needing as well as the cheerleading to pick up the mantle of God s design in a world of contrary voices.Jason Allen is both the editor and one of the contributors Danny Akin, Jason Duesing, Ronnie Floyd, Christian George, Owen Strachan, Don Whitney, Jared Wilson, and John Mark Yeats round out the list of contributors Sometimes a book seems cobbled together when it is a group production In this case, the work has been so beautifully edited ...

    Portraits of a Pastor was recently promoted in an email last month from the Westminster Theological Seminary Bookstore, so I decided to get a copy I recently was accepted into the graduate program at the Talbot School of Theology Biola University, so I thought this would be a timely book to read, written by pastors for pastors or those considering the ministry field The 9 essential roles were outlined and defined, written as an encouragement with clear eyed clarity what it means to pastor a church Pastors must be Biblically qualified and also meet the high standards set forth in 1 Timothy 3, Titus 1 and 1 Peter 5 But importantly the foundation of pastoral ministry is not based on my righteousness, but on the righteousness of Christ In the chapter Pastor as a Man of God, Pastor Whitney expresses the idea written in 1 Tim 3 16 17 that to be a man of God means to be a man of God s Book A pastor ought to live in and by the Bible so much that through it the Holy Spirit constantly teachers, reproves, corrects and trains him I underlined and noted in the margin my long term goal Each chapter covering a different role that every pastor must take on provides great teaching and instruction based on Scripture, along with advice from each pastor authoring the chapter I jotted qui...

    I realised that these compilation collaborative essay type of type of theological titles tend to be of very high quality Because, perhaps for the purposes of brevity, each contribution is essentially a summary that brings out the cream of the subject matter Often a single author, when given about 200 pages, tend to not be as succinct as when they are given only tens of pages to convey that same message.While not all volumes were as well written or engaging as the others possibly because the topic assigned was not their subject specialisation or interest , they were the minority amongst many very well written essays As a whole, the essays laid out what is demanded and how daunting the role of the pastor is And yet strangely at the end of my read, I was encouraged and heartened not because I knew I was able to meet every single criterion, but because I was in awe of the beauty and wonder of how a godly pastor would be like Further, the propositions and substantive matter were grounded ...

    Portraits of a Pastor The 9 Essential Roles of a Church Leader is a collection of essays that deals with the primary roles that fall to ministry leaders There are two primary questions that drive each of the essays Who is the pastor to be and What is the pastor to do In answering these questions, Portraits of a Pastor explores roles and provides insight and practical application into areas such as the pastor as shepherd, husband and father, preacher, theologian, church historian, evangelist, missionary, leader and man of God While I wish had been done to explore women in ministry, this collection is written by Southern Baptists, so in full disclosure, wouldn t include those insights on theological grounds I think the refusal to ordain women for ministry is built on faulty theological grounds, but that s for another day The book walk...

    As a pastor I always enjoy reading the way other people think about pastoring The format of this book is phenomenal Thinking about the different roles a pastor plays and fleshing them out from chapter to chapter made for a great read Most pastors acknowledge that within these different roles there are some places where they excel and some where they do not This book will give you biblical reasons for why you should be fulfilling each role and give you wisdom on how to strengthen yourself wh...
