The Pastor as Scholar & the Scholar as Pastor: Reflections on Life and MinistryBy: John Piper, D. A. Carson
A valuable insider perspective from two men who have been acclaimed for their sharp thinking and warm pastoral hearts. This book looks at the relationship between scholarship and pastoral ministry. Piper centres on the importance of scholarship and academic pursuits in his role as pastor. Carson, conversely, focuses on the importance of pastoral ministry in his career as a scholar. An interesting blend of testimony, insight and teaching, this book challenges 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.
