Item Description...
Overview
The New Guidebook for Pastors is written in the tradition of classics like Criswell?s Guidebook for Pastors. But since most pastoral guidebooks available today date back to 1980 or earlier, this new resource by Mac Brunson and James W. Bryant will offer fresh experience-based encouragement to all pastors in their pursuit of excellence and development in their God-called profession.

Among the twenty chapters are ?The Pastor and His Call,? ?The Pastor and His Family,? ?The Pastor and His Staff,? ?The Pastor and Worship,? ?The Pastor and Finances,? ?The Pastor, Wedding, and Funerals,? ?The Pastor, Politics, and Moral Issues,? and ?The Pastor and His Denomination.?

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Very helpful  Apr 23, 2010
This book was helpful to a new pastor, however I would be careful if you are not a Baptist, the authors are Baptist and they have a tendency to come across with Southern Baptist Theology at times. As long as you are well grounded in your denominational theology you will do fine. Like I said above, this book was helpful.
 
The New Guidebook for Pastors  Mar 15, 2010
Love this book. The author keeps it real when talking about the things a pastor will face. Very practical book and a good read. I would recommend to any thinking of being a pastor.
 
Gender issue  Nov 17, 2009
Just by the description alone I am saddened to see that it is gender biased. "Pastor and HIS family". What about Pastor and Her ministry? The title should be changed from "the new guidebook for Pastors" to "the new guidebook for MALE pastors".
 
Excellent update to the original  Aug 7, 2009
As an owner of Dr. Criswell's original version, I found this updated book to be very useful. I will admit I come from a more conservative theological viewpoint so I am already in agreement with most of the authors' presuppositions. If you are from a more liberal background you may not like what this book has to say about divorced pastors and the like. However, remember that these are men who are giving their interpretations and viewpoints based on their own experience and training. I also like the addition of other pastor's take on the different sections. I approached this book as I do any other work outside of Scripture by understanding ahead of time that I may not agree with all of it but I still found some very useful content. For those of you ladies out there upset because this doesn't address female ministers, I would suggest you review God's stance. It's no accident that there is a negative connotation to Deborah having to lead Israel during the period of the judges because the men weren't leading like they should. Doesn't make you inferior in any way, you have different roles and being the head of a church is not one of them.
 
Need to "Practice" What you Write (Preach)  Apr 10, 2009
Unfortunately one of the authors, (Dr. Brunson) needs to read what he wrote and follow his own advice. He speaks to young pastors in this book and tells them not to accept gifts and yet he himself has accepted a rather large gift from a church member worth over $300,000. Makes the rest of what he has written in this book suspect. No stars for hypocrisy in action. (couldn't do no stars, this site wouldn't let me, but I really intended to do "no stars).
