My review of Siang-Yang Tan’s “Shepherding God’s People: A Guide to Faithful and Fruitful Pastoral Ministry”.Continue reading ““Shepherding God’s People” (Tan, 2019) Review”
Becoming a Pastor Theologian: New Possibilities for Church Leadership represents a growing shift in pastoral studies. The editors, Todd Wilson and Gerald Hiestand, note that there is very little biblical scholarship coming from the church itself. Rather, a lot of pastors are left reading other people’s work, and that work is not necessarily aimed for the church. This volume comes as an effort to address that issue. With contributions from a wide array of authors, each shows us how to be a pastoral-theologian: to do the work of shepherding a flock, and creating biblical scholarship for that flock.
