9781511564700: A Pastor and the People: An Inside Look through Letters

Some “jobs” are more interesting than others, and from time to time we enjoy hearing about someone else’s work. As the title suggests, in A Pastor and the People readers are given An Inside Look through Letters on what it’s like to be a pastor. During his 44 years of ministry in four churches Pastor Bob Mink saved many of the letters he received and wrote. In A Pastor and the People he shares some of those letters in the three parts of the book: Youth Ministry, Minister of a Small Church, and Pastor of a Large Church. There are quite a few letters that are complimentary and affirming, but as you might imagine, not all the letters received were in that category. He also includes a variety of hurtful ones in a chapter entitled “Troublesome Letters.” Readers will also read a number of letters he wrote to individuals as well as public letters he wrote to his church. You will gain insight into things that people liked and appreciated about their pastor as well as some things they did not like. You will also get a look into a pastor’s heart for his people. Pastors, those considering being a pastor, church leaders, church members, and even those who simply want to know what being a pastor involves will enjoy this behind the scenes tour of the work of a pastor.

Review:

You can learn a lot reading other people's mail. Here is a pastor in love with his people, his Lord, his calling.  It's a big world God called him to: challenging, joy-filled, frequently frustrating, never boring and ultimately fulfilling. This is good reading . . .LeRoy Lawson, Ph.D.Distinguished Professor of Christian MinistriesDirector of Doctor of Ministry Program'Emmanual Christian Seminary

Whether you are a preacher, church leader or simply a member of the congregation, I think you'll enjoy Bob Mink's book, a compilation of letters he received and send during his 44 years of ministry. Not only will you be entertained by these letters and enriched by Bob's commentary, but I think you'll benefit from the lessons Bob learned about leading a church, preaching the Gospel and shepherding to his flock.Bob Russell, Retired Senior MinisterSoutheast Christian Church

Would you like to see how a seasoned pastor navigated several decades of ministry, and how those he served reacted to it? Do you enjoy reading other people's mail? Then you'll enjoy reading Bob Mink's unique insight into ministry shared here in letters he received and kept throughout the years. You'll laugh and learn as you look over Bob Mink's shoulder.Mark Taylor, EditorChristian Standard

Bob Mink has compiled a lifetime of professional and personal correspondence. This book will impact your heart and head. Bob identifies why we have been called to ministry . . .Dr. Joseph C. Grana IIDean of Pacific Christian College of Ministry & Biblical StudiesHope International University
