Product Description

The Pastor as Scholar and The Scholar as Pastor is the result of two conference speeches at the 2009 Gospel Coalition conference by John Piper and D. A. Carson. Presented two talks at Park Community Church in Chicago and sponsored by the Henry Institute at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, their presentation focused on the relationship of scholarship and pastoral ministry. Piper centered on the importance of scholarship and academic pursuits in his role as pastor. Carson, conversely, focused on the importance of pastoral ministry in his career as scholar. The event was enthusiastically received and brought great insight and balance.

Now their talks have been edited with additional content and put into book form. Weaving testimony and teaching, Piper and Carson challenge all those in ministry to think carefully and holistically about their calling. An introduction by Owen Strachan and a conclusion by David Mathis provide context and application to these unique messages.

Pastors and scholars will want to take advantage of this valuable insider perspective from two men who have been acclaimed for their sharp thinking and pastoral hearts.
