In The Pastor, author Eugene Peterson, translator of the multimillion-selling The Message, tells the story of how he started Christ Our King Presbyterian Church in Bel Air, Maryland and his gradual discovery of what it really means to be a pastor. Steering away from abstractions, Peterson challenges conventional wisdom regarding church marketing, mega pastors, and the church’s too-cozy relationship to American glitz and consumerism to present a simple, faith-based description of what being a minister means today. In the end, Peterson discovers that being a pastor boils down to “paying attention and calling attention to ‘what is going on now’ between men and women, with each other and with God.”
A Great Troll Story!!
Thanks Pastor Pete:)
Every Pastor Needs to Read This!
This is not a cookie cutter template of 20 steps to be the perfect pastor that floods the Christian book market. It is an authentic memoir of the life of a man who wanted to be a biblical pastor in the midst of an American culture that wants to turn everything into consumerism, individualism, and competition. I have taken many nuggets of truth from this book. I believe you will too.
