The Pastor as Scholar and the Scholar as Pastor

Full Product Description

A valuable insider perspective from two men who have been acclaimed for their sharp thinking and warm pastoral hearts.

This book looks at the relationship between scholarship and pastoral ministry. Piper centres on the importance of scholarship and academic pursuits in his role as pastor. Carson, conversely, focuses on the importance of pastoral ministry in his career as a scholar.

An interesting blend of testimony, insight and teaching, this book challenges those in ministry to think carefully and holistically about their calling. An introduction by Owen Strachan and a conclusion by David Mathis provide context and application.

'Few books are so needed as this. Recapturing the vision of the pastor as scholar and the scholar as pastor is crucial for the health of the church. Who would not want to read John Piper and D. A. Carson as they reflect on this calling? This is one of the most encouraging and helpful books I have seen in a long time. If you are a pastor, read it. If you have a pastor, put it in his hands.' - R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
