Like, "Letters to Timothy," the book seeks to be a practical guide to pastoral ministry. It covers preaching, teaching, visitations, etc. But, unlike the other book, it does not cover everything. I enjoyed this book but was surprised by how much was left out. The authors are thorough in touching issues like preaching, visitation, and counseling, but fails to discuss in detail other aspects of ministry.
What I liked most about this book was that in each chapter, each author discussed how they practice the subject at hand with personal insight into what they have learned over the years. The reading is able to look into the failures and successes of these well known pastors.
Overall, this is a good book. Of course, it must be since Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr., writes the foreword. You must know that it is worth reading them. I recommend this book to anyone in pastoral ministry or thinking about it. It is a good overview on what a godly pastor looks like.
