Reviews

Academy of Parish Clergy, Top 10 Books for Parish Ministry (2008)

Friedrich Schweitzer
-- University of Tübingen
"This is exactly what we have been waiting for -- a rich but succinct introduction to practical theology, close to everyday life, full of helpful examples, and with many illuminating case studies from different fields of ministerial work. A true gift to all students of theology and to ministers!"

Sharon Daloz Parks
-- author of Leadership Can Be Taught
"Grounded in the practical, with a scholar's feel for the theoretical, Rick Osmer illumines a path by which we can and must become both faithful theologians and competent pastors in the midst of today's complex congregations. This book will richly inform the new minister and renew the more seasoned pastor, while challenging the assumptions of theological education -- too long held hostage to the false distinction between practical and 'impractical' theology."
