Publisher's Description

D. A. Carson's father was a pioneering church-planter and pastor in Quebec. But still, an ordinary pastor-except that he ministered during the decades that brought French Canada from the brutal challenges of persecution and imprisonment for Baptist ministers to spectacular growth and revival in the 1970s.

It is a story, and an era, that few in the English-speaking world know anything about. But through Tom Carson's journals and written prayers, and the narrative and historical background supplied by his son, readers will be given a firsthand account of not only this trying time in North American church history, but of one pastor's life and times, dreams and disappointments. With words that will ring true for every person who has devoted themselves to the Lord's work, this unique book serves to remind readers that though the sacrifices of serving God are great, the sweetness of living a faithful, obedient life is greater still.


Memoirs of an Ordinary Pastor is an intensive study of Baptist pastor Tom Carson’s life, work, and ideas and an interesting look at the evangelical work in French Canada from the late 1940’s through to the 1970s. Tom Carson was intensely devoted to his Lord. A quiet, deep man who felt all people deserved to be treated well. He built his life and ministry on the scriptures; to him there was no other possible foundation. The Lord called Carson to work within the societal web of French-speaking Canadians, and caused him to do it successfully. With true humility, fearlessness, sometimes without money because of opposition from within Christianity, but always as his Lord directed, Carson laid a strong, enduring foundation for further work. Memoirs of an Ordinary Pastor unforgettably illustrates John 3:30: He must increase, but I must decrease. Augmenting this biography, the author includes a brief, quite interesting look at Canadian history, and an epilogue of Pastor Carson’s correspondence.

How better to learn about a man than from a son who deeply loves and respects him? This is exactly how Memoirs of an Ordinary Pastor is written. Dr. Carson is a renowned Christian scholar and professor, yet, with the same Christian humility his father displayed in all his work, Dr. Carson presents us with the legacy his father gave to him and to the Canadian people. Reading Memoirs causes deep, sometimes wrenching introspection. It is an important chapter in Christian history. I’m very glad I read it, and am still pondering it. – Donna Eggett,
