The Art of Pastoring is beloved by many pastors and ministry students because of what it is not. It is not a book about how to grow your church. It's not about how to lead like a business person or an entrepreneur. This is a book about the heart of pastoral ministry.
It's about what it's like, in the midst of confusing, messy situations, to be a "parable of Jesus" on a day-to-day basis. By colorfully conveying his insights and experiences of the pastorate, David Hansen invites others to pay attention to their own stories and hopes for ministry.
Now revised and updated throughout with a new forward, introduction, and afterward, two new appendices, and a discussion guide, The Art of Pastoring is your invitation to sit with Daniel Hansen and explore the wonder of your calling.
