Read Memoirs of an Ordinary Pastor

I’m reading Memoirs of an Ordinary Pastor by D.A. Carson.  I’m enjoying it and recently read this interview (pp. 8-9) of the author on the book.  This question is one worth meditating on:

Crossway Books and Bibles: What could young pastors learn from your father’s day-to-day struggles in ministry?

D.A. Carson: Faithfulness, the importance of regular Bible reading, long-term commitments, gospel centeredness, maintaining good relationships and avoiding bitterness, the place of prayer, and transparent care for the good of the people in your charge.

You can see a description and endorsements of the book here.

Here’s one endorsement:

“Read this book and be strengthened. You hold in your hands history, humor, and an amazing amount of wisdom for the Christian life (especially for pastors!).”
Mark Dever, Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church
