Someone cannot just wake up one morning and proclaim himself a bonafide member of the Medical Association; Lawyers Council; Pilots Association or Engineering council, without having gone to their school and pass through the process of becoming a recognized member of such prestigious bodies. If anyone tried it, he would be labeled a quack and an impostor! Well, the reverse is the case in Christian ministry. Anyone can just wake up and call himself or herself a minister of the gospel with high sounding and self-awarded titles. Denominations also have not helped matters. People are made ministers indiscriminately. Bible colleges and seminaries have also not fared better. People buy doctoral titles and upon graduation are ordained as ministers of the gospel. With all these errors, small wonder we have lots of incompetent and incredible ministers all over the place today. This book by Dr. Akin-John is the humble attempt to bring sanity to this malaise. He wrote on: * Who is a true gospel minister? * Why incompetent ministers are on the increase. * Qualities of competent and credible ministers. * Factors that define a competent minister. * Jesus' Favourite Minister and many more. This is a classic work on how to become relevant, current and time-tested ministers of the gospel. This is a training manual for ministers and should often be consulted for guidance and advice. It is highly recommended for every minister, denominations, ministers screening boards and training institutions.
