A memorable firsthand account of not only the sacrifices and triumphs of full-time ministry but of a brutal, little-known era in North American church history.
D. A. Carson (PhD, Cambridge University) is research professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, where he has taught since 1978. He is a cofounder of the Gospel Coalition and has written or edited nearly 120 books. He and his wife, Joy, have two children and live in the north suburbs of Chicago.
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. Im very glad I read it, and am still pondering it.
