The Pastor as Minor Poet eloquently calls pastors to search for a deeper understanding of what they see -- both in the text of Scripture and in the text of their parishioners' lives. A critical part of this poetic vision involves discerning key subtexts beneath these texts, which allows pastors to preach the heart of the Word and to understand the hearts of their people. Written with a seasoned pastor's depth of understanding and a poet's sensibility and sensitivity, this book will minister to and inspire pastors everywhere.
The Pastor as Minor Poet explores the contemporary challenges of parish ministry and invites the pastor to respond not with more innovations but by recovering the clergys historic belief in words. The role of minor poet does not promise an easy life but Barnes is adamant that, when pastors embrace the holiness of this calling, it is marked by the hard-won joy of uncovering and declaring Gods word to his people. About
"Barnes knows all about being a pastor, how to use authority, how to lead, how to listen, and how to provoke. He knows, moreover, that it finally all comes down to faithful words that can conjure alternative scenarios of the future. In a society cold with technical reason, this summons to poetic truth is of huge importance."
