What it means to be called into ministry for the "one Jesus" of the New Testament
Richard Burridge's Four Gospels, One Jesus? has long been a popular introduction to the New Testament gospels. In this book Burridge looks specifically at pastoral ministry through the lens of each gospel. The book's four major parts are MATTHEW-Teaching Good News, LUKE-Pastoral Care, MARK-Suffering the Way of the Cross, and JOHN-Praying the Divine Life.
Combining the skills of a leading biblical scholar with the wisdom derived from years of pastoral experience, Burridge invites readers to consider such questions as how to extend pastoral care to people both outside and inside Christian community, how to take care of oneself and one's family, and how to stay attuned to the Spirit by cultivating a fresh and vigorous life of prayer.
Full of practical advice on developing and maintaining the skills needed for ministry today, Four Ministries, One Jesus will be a vital resource for anyone who is called to Christian ministry.
