:

After traveling the world for many years and speaking in hundreds of churches of all kinds, Paul David Tripp is concerned about the state of pastoral culture. He's concerned about not only the spiritual life of the pastor, but about the people who train him, call him, relate to him, and restore him if necessary. Dangerous Calling reveals that the culture surrounding our pastors is spiritually unhealthy-an environment that actively undermines the well-being and efficacy of our church leaders, and thus the entire church body. Here is a book that both diagnoses and offers cures for issues that impact every church member and leader, and gives solid strategies for fighting the war that rages not only in the most memorable moments of ministry, but also in the mundane day-to-day life of every pastor.

Challenging Thought-provoking
5 stars By Mikey, Jan 20 2017
Found this book to really cut to the heart. For those considering full-time ministry or already involved in doing ministry at church, I highly recommend this book. It speaks of the expectations in ministry, and the real and raw feelings we will have to face in the role. Challenging and honest when it comes to the real hardships of the ministry, yet also inspiring and encouraging as Tripp points us to the great and gracious Shepherd we serve. Very thankful that I was given this book to read and how it ministered to me.

Personally challenging for anyone in ministry
5 stars By David, Dec 09 2014
I can't recommend this book more.  This isn't the kind of light and fluffy book you read to feel good, but if you're wanting to be challenged on matters of character, of heart, of direction and purpose and to bring the way you do things more into line with God's word, then this is for you.  It is the kind of no-nonsense book that gets straight to the point and raises issues of utmost importance in personal life and ministry in a very personally challenging way. Loved it.
