Eugene H. Peterson

Wm. B. Eerdmans, 1993

This is a must-read for parish pastors who wish to approach and apply their calling from a spiritual perspective.     

With candid wisdom and biblical expertise, Eugene Peterson spells out the pitfalls of the cultural norm of work and success in ministry in America and presents an alternative model for spiritually centered pastoral care. Peterson shares honestly from his own experience as he guides overworked and distracted clergy to re-focusing their energy on meaningful ministry.

"This excellent treatise on the rediscovery of the authentic purpose of true pastoral care deserves attention, dialogue and action."" - St. Anthony Messenger
