Book Description William B Eerdmans Publishing Co, United States, 1995. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. 214 x 149 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Any pastor who needs and wants to get back to basics will do well to absorb this book. Eugene Peterson, who has been gaining a growing reputation as a pastor s pastor , here speaks words of wisdom and refreshment for pastors caught in the busyness of preaching, teaching, and running the church. The Contemplative Pastor highlights the often-overlooked essentials of ministry, first by redefining the meaning of pastor through three strengthening adjectives: unbusy, subversive, and apocalyptic. The main part of the book focuses on pastoral ministry and spiritual direction between Sundays : these chapters begin with poetic reflections on the Beatitudes and then discuss such themes as curing souls, praying with eyes open, the language of prayer, the ministry of small talk, and sabbatical - all with engaging, illustrative anecdotes from Peterson s own experience. The book ends with several meaning-full poems that pivot on the incarnation, the doctrine closest to pastoral work. Entitled The Word Made Fresh, this concluding section is a felicitous finale to Peterson s discerning, down-to-earth reflections on the art of pastoring. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780802801142
