Publisher's Description

In churches today, there are ever fewer older pastors speaking into the lives of younger leaders, and fewer younger leaders feeling there is much to be learned from the experience of their elders. Street-smart wisdom is gone from training as there are many men and women preparing pastors who have never themselves pastored a church. Intriguingly, even older, more seasoned pastors yearn for insight into their task, as they remain "undiscipled" in the school of leadership.

In What They Didn't Teach You in Seminary, veteran pastor James Emery White provides the kind of mentoring young pastors desperately need but cannot get from academia or leadership books. These "from the trenches" insights will help them transform their relationships with staff and parishoners, develop healthy boundaries, deliver hard truths, avoid spiritual pitfalls, use their time effectively, and much more.

    I skimmed through the book prior to giving this to my pastor. He is a first time senior pastor and has a lot to learn and I think that if he is open minded he will learn some excellent lessons and hopefully will heed some of the advice in the book.

    This book by James White touches upon many areas that are not covered in a Seminary education. It touches upon the practical side of Pastoring. We often get the intellectual, theological points down in our studies, but how do we handle the day-to-day areas of life in a church setting. I recommend this book to other Pastors - new and experienced. It has much to be gleaned.
