by Gilbert Noah Burkett
Dr. Gilbert N. Burkett offers this well-researched and Scripture-based guide to Pastoring from a Biblical View in the hopes that, upon reflection, Christian ministers will realize areas of their ministry that need improvement and return to the Bible for guidelines in meeting those needs. He addresses the minister and his various roles and responsibilities in his home, community, country, and church. He reminds ministers of the importance of Godís calling and of keeping the ministry grounded in God and His work rather than the world and its pleasures.
His message is one of thanksgiving and the hope that with Godís help and the support of His word, Godís people will be led by righteous and holy leaders.
