Publisher's Description

This world is full of distractions, and a pastor's life is no different. With church politics, staffing issues, volunteer programmes and no end of other issues popping up, it can be difficult to keep focus. In this tremendous little book, William Still reminds us that the pastor's main thing is feeding the sheep - i.e. the ministry of the Word. It has become a modern classic on preaching and pastoral ministry.

Author Bio

William Still was minister of the Gilcomston Church of Scotland from 1945 until 1997. His ministry had a strong emphasis on Biblically based expository preaching.

Editorial Reviews

This book contains the distilled wisdom of many years of fruitful ministry by the author. It is a tried and proven theology of pastoral care based on the belief that the whole Word of God proclaimed and applied is sufficient to meet dynamically the pastoral needs of God's people. The chapters are based on five addresses given to students in 1964 and 1965. Here is an important and timely reminder of the essential priorities of ministry which should be read by every minister.
"The Work of the Pastor is one of my favorite books to give away, and therefore I am delighted to see it back in print. William Still pastored the same city church for more than fifty years. By his absolute faithfulness to the Word of God and dedication to intercessory prayer, he became a leader for gospel renewal in the Church of Scotland. This small classic presents Mr. Still's best thinking and most passionate convictions about the work of ministry that he loved so well and fulfilled so completely."

...plain, direct, filled with conviction, and soaked with pastoral observation and wisdom that nourishes the soul. The Work of the Pastor has one main idea: Feed the sheep the Word of God. If you need encouragement to do that, or a vision for doing that, then read this book and be challenged.
"A great little book by a remarkable missionary to whom I owe an immense personal debt. Every minister should read it once a year - at least!"
