The following is an excerpt from a full review of The Pastor’s Justification by Jared Wilson.
“How should one think of pastoral ministry? Where does a pastor find his motivation and identity? What is the most appropriate way to minister to those under us? Looking around modern evangelical cultural today, one finds many answers derived from pragmatic business principles, best leadership practices, and psychological techniques, rather than the Bible or theology. Jared C. Wilson (pastor of Middletown Spring Community Church in Middletown Springs, Vermont) gives a timely corrective to this tendency in his latest book The Pastor’s Justification. Written for those in pastoral ministry, or for those considering pastoral ministry, Wilson provides a gospel-centered vision for pastoral ministry which unites the reality of the gospel with everyday pastoral ministry.”
