On Being a Pastor
Understanding Our Calling and Work
We have one copy available in hardcover and then that edition is Out of Print.
On Being a Pastor is an essential tool to help pastors fulfill their calling. A pastor’s responsibilities are unique, demanding that he nurture his own spiritual life as well as that of the people in his care. Derek Prime and Alistair Begg provide practical advice for both the spiritual and practical aspects of pastoral ministry. Topics include prayer, devotional habits, preaching, and specific ministry duties.
“Being a pastor is a high calling, which requires devotion, skillfulness, and unique spiritual preparation. Derek Prime and Alistair Begg provide clarity for the call, wisdom for the journey, and experience for the task. This book is like a conversation with good friends providing no nonsense counsel for the ministry challenges of the 21st century. — Jack Graham, Pastor, Prestonwood Baptist Church, Dallas, Texas
“On Being a Pastor is an outstanding book, which should be on every pastor’s shelf. I have read and consulted the precious version from the pen of Derek Prime for many years. Now it has been revised and enriched with the cooperation of Alistair Begg, and the result is splendid! — Eric Alexander, Retired Pastor, St. George’s-Tron Parish Church, Scotland
