Description

"When it comes to the pastorate, there is no more scholarly and trusted voice for me than Scot McKnight. With the intellect of a man devoted to theology, with a heart shaped by Christ's love, and with a lifetime of insight, Scot reclaims the true nature of what it means to shepherd God's people. Rather than chasing the intoxicating fruit of larger churches, book deals, and conference speaking, Scot rightly helps those in ministry to return to ministry in the light of the apostle Paul. This is a needed book in a time when more and more of us know less and less of what it is to center on Christ in a pastorate increasingly shaped by business-style 'leadership.'"
--Sean Palmer, author of Unarmed Empire: In Search of Beloved Community, preaching coach, and teaching pastor at Ecclesia Houston

"With careful exegesis of Paul's world, Paul's letters, and our own world, McKnight shows how pastoral ministry in the spirit of Paul is focused on nurturing a culture of corporate Christlikeness. Full of wisdom concerning critical aspects of both Pauline and contemporary pastoral ministry, this is a book that will help form more faithful ministers of the gospel and, through them, more faithful churches."
--Michael J. Gorman, St. Mary's Seminary and University, Baltimore

"This book contains a wealth of treasures for anyone who is currently pastoring, who has been pastoring for years, or who is beginning to sense a call to pastor. McKnight's ability to mine the Scriptures to bring inspiration, wisdom, and a Christoform framework to the work of a pastor is profound. Most striking is that the vision he presents for pastors feels attainable. So at its heart this book is deeply encouraging. I highly recommend this."
--Lucy Peppiatt, principal, Westminster Theological Centre, United Kingdom

"Too often we have split teachings of and narratives about Paul between his high theology and his pastoral practicality. Pastor Paul shows how the major theological themes form the contours of pastoral ministry. At the core is the mandate and possibility of leading people into Christlikeness. In an age when pastoral ministry is often pragmatic without principle, this is a welcome corrective. Creating a 'culture of Christoformity, ' as McKnight puts it, should be a liberating and encouraging focal point for anyone trudging along in pastoral ministry today."
--Mel Lawrenz, minister at large, Elmbrook Church, Brookfield, Wisconsin
