Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This book contains the distilled wisdom of many years of fruitful ministry by the author. It is a tried and proven theology of pastoral care based on the belief that the whole Word of God proclaimed and applied is sufficient to meet dynamically the pastoral needs of God's people. The chapters are based on five addresses given to students in 1964 and 1965. Here is an important and timely reminder of the essential priorities of ministry which should be read by every minister. ~ CLC Review
•..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. ~ Thabiti Anyabwile (Assistant Pastor for church planting, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, D.C.)

"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, Scotland)

Philip G. Ryken ~ President
"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."
