Product Description

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.

Publisher's Description

How does a theologically substantive ministry come into being? And how does a theological orientation to the vocation make a difference in pastoral practice? The Power to Comprehend with All the Saints brings pastor-theologians together to answer these and other key questions about the integrity of their vocation. These pastoral voices speak wisdom that will enrich both the academy and the church.

Academy of Parish ClergyTop 10 Books for Parish Ministry (2010)

Michael Welker
University of Heidel
"In Germany we have in many ways profited and learned from the pastor-theologian visions and activities created by Wallace Alston and Cynthia Jarvis. This book is another splendid contribution to the fruitful interaction between academic theology and pastoral practice."
