Preparation For Ministry deals with important issues relating to a call to the Christian ministry, theological training, and entry into pastoral work.
The author has written it out of his own rich experience as a student, a pastor, and a seminary teacher. Those contemplating entry into the Christian ministry will benefit greatly from his practical advice on such subjects as coming to faith, the call to the ministry, pre-theological study, and choosing a theological college or seminary.
Those already in theological training or who have recently entered into ministry will also find much to help them within these pages on such topics as the theological course, early ministry, and staying fresh.
A brief bibliography is provided, and the book also contains useful appendices, including:
- a guide to preparatory reading
- a short guide to sermon preparation
- C H Spurgeon's The Minister's Self-Watch
- B B Warfield's The Religious Life of Theological Students
"Here are first principles for those who wonder if they are being called to the ministry, guidance for those in training, and wisdom for those already engaged in the work. That Preparation for Ministry comes from the desk of Allan Harman - Pastor, Professor, and Principal - is all the recommendation it needs. First class!"
- Sinclair B Ferguson
