There are hordes of how-to books about the pastorate. Pastor and author David Hansen thinks that's fine on one level, since pastoring requires many practical skills. But what isn't so easily found in books is a focus on the heart of the ministry: what it's like, in an often confusing and messy world, to be a "parable of Jesus Christ" on a day-to-day basis. This book provides that missing focus. Here are stories of nearly a decade of ministry in the mountains of Montana. By conveying his insights and experiences, Hansen invites others to pay attention to their own stories and hopes for ministry. Original, unpretentious and profound, The Art of Pastoring will inspire and enlighten veteran pastors, seminarians and those who wonder if God is calling them to ministry.
