ValSWestern CanadaAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5pastor or parishioner -- listen upAugust 27, 2011ValSWestern CanadaAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Meant to inspire and critique the pastoring profession, it is great to read even for non-pastors. It's an old book, but the message is still fresh and urgent -- pastoring is not principally administration or entertainment. It's so pithy and can keep us ALL on our toes.
John Curtis4 Stars Out Of 5June 9, 2008John CurtisThe book is not as well organized as Peterson is capable of, but its thematic and practical content - particularly the chapter to the tendency of pastors/counselors to classify people - is pretty much seminal. This is an important book.
David R. Bess3 Stars Out Of 5November 16, 2003David R. BessThis title is the second one I have read by Peterson. I frankly was disappointed with lack of applicable content. He does address pastors directly, but he seems to ramble when he could be making one point after another. Most pastors will find something in his words of value. I did. For the nuggets of truth this book does contain, I give it three stars. Still, Peterson seems to be capable of doing so much better.There is no doubt that Peterson is a man of God who has a message for the people of this age. I just sensed that the "thus saith the Lord" was garbled somewhere between the prophet and the written proclamation. For the money, this title is a good, but not great, read for pastors and other church leaders.
