Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A great little book by a remarkable missionary to whom I owe an immense personal debt. Every minister should read it once a year - at least!" ~ Sinclair B. Ferguson (Associate Preacher, St Peter's Free Church, Dundee)"The Work of the Pastor is one of my favorite books to give away, and therefore I am delighted to see it back in print. William Still pastored the same city church for more than fifty years. By his absolute faithfulness to the Word of God and dedication to intercessory prayer, he became a leader for gospel renewal in the Church of Scotland. This small classic presents Mr. Still's best thinking and most passionate convictions about the work of ministry that he loved so well and fulfilled so completely." ~ Philip G. Ryken (President, Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois)

...plain, direct, filled with conviction, and soaked with pastoral observation and wisdom that nourishes the soul. The Work of the Pastor has one main idea: Feed the sheep the Word of God. If you need encouragement to do that, or a vision for doing that, then read this book and be challenged.
