How many times have you heard great things about a church only to find no theological substance in the preaching? How many times have you encountered theologically illiterate pastors, lay persons, or church educators? Is there nothing more tragic and disheartening than a church leader who knows nothing about theology? This book, The Power to Comprehend with All the Saints: The Formation and Practice of a Pastor-Theologian tackles this issue head on, and outlines ways in which the church can effectively bring theologically substantive ministries into being while maintaining the integrity and uniqueness of the pastoral vocation. A book of collected essays by top pastor-theologians, its authors address issues such as teaching children about theology at an early age, the education of pastors, the formative practice and spiritual discipline of reading theology, and the practical outworking of the theological reflection in the practical ministry of the pastor.
