Dangerous CallingJackie Rowe, via The Good Book Stall
Paul Tripp's book, it seems to me, is a must-read for every pastor, church leader or anyone with a sphere of influence within a church. It is hard-hitting yet tender, exposing yet up building, diagnostic and curative, full of truth and grace. He writes from his own deeply humbling experience about how easy it is for pastors to think of themselves more highly than they ought to think. Certain clear themes run throughout the book. One of those themes is nicely summed up by a sentence in the first chapter "Biblical maturity is never just about what you know; it's always about how grace has employed what you have come to know to transform the way you live". Another thread running through the chapters is the problem of the disconnect between the pastor's ministry persona and his private life. The problems are clearly delineated, and then the answers bring hope and healing. For example he talks about finding our identity in Christ and not in the opinions of others; the necessity for a pastor of allowing someone to pastor him and the need to preach the gospel of grace to our own hearts as well as to others. A thoroughly good read.

'Few would regard a pastor
"Few would regard a pastor’s role as a dangerous calling, but few people are as qualified and insightful as Paul Tripp to penetrate the snares and potential pitfalls associated with pastoral ministry. Fewer still would prescribe such gospel based and local church rooted remedies. This excellent volume should be read, re-read & applied." - Terry Virgo , founder, Newfrontiers
"My friend Paul Tripp has done it again. With probing insight and robust realism, he takes an honest look into the challenges that are unique to, or intensified by, pastoral ministry. Gospel-centered and grace saturated to the core, Dangerous Calling is a must read for any pastor or pastor in training who needs to be encouraged by the reminder that Jesus came to do for us what we could never do for ourselves or others." - Tullian Tchividjian, Pastor, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church; author, Jesus + Nothing = Everything
"This book is ‘good’ in the same way that heart surgery is good. It's painful and scary and as you read it you'll be tempted to run away from the truth it contains. But it just might save your life. Pastors need this book. I know I really needed it. It challenged me and rebuked me even as it gave me hope and fresh faith in God for pastoral ministry." - Joshua Harris, Senior Pastor, Covenant Life Church, Gaithersburg, Maryland; author, Dug Down Deep
