Ministry by the Book
Full Product Description
Derek Tidball provides a comprehensive survey of these models and patterns. By 'ministry', he has in mind primarily 'full-time' or 'professional' ministry, although his analysis is relevant to others who exercise ministry on a more occasional basis. For Tidball, the terms 'ministry' and 'leadership', or 'pastoral leadership', are interchangeable. His main focus in this volume is on pastoral leadership within local churches or groups of churches.
Tidball's survey offers 'models of permission' that enable a freer approach to ministry and the way it is conducted, challenges the stunted understanding of ministry that can often characterize our churches today, and gives encouragement to those who do not fit a 'ministry by numbers' approach.
Well-grounded in the relevant scholarship, Tidball's fresh engagement with the biblical texts, stimulating analysis and wise application will be of value to all who are established in pastoral leadership, or training for it.

"This book adds a needed injection into the discussion of the nature of the church and its leadership models in the 21st century. Many churches and pastors tend to be rigidly model orientated, even emerging churches. Tidball offers 'models of permission' that enable a freer approach to ministry and the way it is conducted. He provides a refreshingly 'multi-colored not monochrome' picture of ministry." - Ross Hastings, Regent College, Vancouver
