Product Description

With characteristic insight and wit Peterson reminds us that the success of our ministry does not rest on either cutting edge methodology or the ability to administer programs, but on our ability to listen. Thus, he encourages us to return to the regular practice of listening to God in prayer, listening to the revelation of Scripture and listening to the stories of our neighbors. Working the Angles does not reveal an unknown secret of pastoral ministry, but encourages us to return to a basic practice and rhythm of pastoral life.

    Meant to inspire and critique the pastoring profession, it is great to read even for non-pastors. It's an old book, but the message is still fresh and urgent -- pastoring is not principally administration or entertainment. It's so pithy and can keep us ALL on our toes.

    The book is not as well organized as Peterson is capable of, but its thematic and practical content - particularly the chapter to the tendency of pastors/counselors to classify people - is pretty much seminal. This is an important book.

    This title is the second one I have read by Peterson. I frankly was disappointed with lack of applicable content. He does address pastors directly, but he seems to ramble when he could be making one point after another. Most pastors will find something in his words of value. I did. For the nuggets of truth this book does contain, I give it three stars. Still, Peterson seems to be capable of doing so much better.There is no doubt that Peterson is a man of God who has a message for the people of this age. I just sensed that the "thus saith the Lord" was garbled somewhere between the prophet and the written proclamation. For the money, this title is a good, but not great, read for pastors and other church leaders.
