Reviews - What do our customers think?
Useful Book  Feb 19, 2010
Currently I am taking a class in seminary and this is the textbook. It if filled with useful information about being a biblical pastor. It has some really deep thoughts and useful applications throughout.
 
Must-Read for Pastors  Dec 15, 2009
The subtitle says it all - "How to Shepherd Biblically." John MacArthur and the Master's Seminary Faculty did a great job writing this book to "call pastors back to the Scriptures as the authoritative basis for developing a philosophy of ministry." This is a great companion to his other books, "Preaching Biblically" and "Master's Plan for the Church."

In summarizing my thoughts on this book, I divide the book into two general categories:

1.) What is a Pastor to BE?
The Pastor is to be humble (pg 15-23) which includes confidence in God's power, committed to God's trust (1 Thes 2.3), commissioned by God's will (1 Thes 2.4), compelled by God's knowledge, consumed with God's glory (2 Cor 3:7-11, 4:7, 1 Thes 2:6). He is to be "above reproach" and meet the other qualifications in Titus 1 and 1 Tim 3 (each qualification is examined on pgs 67-80). He must be called which includes confirmation, abilities, longings and lifestyle (pg 81-91). He is to be trained with godly character, biblical knowledge, and ministry skills (pg 92-106) and ordained (pg 107-117).

2.) What is a Pastor to DO?
The primary objective in shepherding God's flock is to FEED them, that is, he must be "able to teach" them the word of God (1 Tim 3.2, Titus 1.9). In 1 and 2 Timothy, Paul gives pastoral instructions to Timothy to preach, refute, be an example, be diligent, and to suffer (pg 25-26). The Pastor is to equip the members of the congregation so they will use their spiritual gifts to edify one another (pg 55-58). He is to lead the church in the 7 ministries as recorded in scripture: the word, fellowship, Lord's Supper, prayer, outreach, missions, interchurch fellowship (pg 59-63). A pastor is to have a home that is an "example of a mature Christian marriage and family as an encouragement to the other homes in the flock" (pg 123, pg 121-130). He is to abide in Jesus (John 15:7-8) and pray dependently in all situations (Eph 6.10-20) (pg 131-143). He is to "be of sober spirit, on the alert" (1 Pet 5.8, pg 150). He is to study diligently in preparing to preach the scriptures accurately (pg 162-175). He is to provide leadership in the following areas:
a.) Worshiping (pg 189-203).
b.) Preaching (pg 204-213). In much preaching today, Biblical Exposition "takes a back seat to misguided craving for `relevance'" (pg 207) In contrast, Titus 1:9 says a preacher must be noted for "holding fast the faithful word which is in accordance with the teaching, that he may be able both to exhort in sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict".
c.) Modeling (pg 214-227) (1 Cor 11:1, 1 Thes 2:14).
d.) Leading (pg 228-246). Leadership is the "exercise of one's spiritual gifts under the call of God to serve a certain group of people in achieving the goals God has given them toward end of glorifying Christ" (Gangel) (pg 229-230). Leadership is a gift (Rom 12.8, 1 Cor 12.28). A godly leader is to be a "servant leader" (Matt 23:11, 20:25-28)
e.) Outreaching (pg 247-260). Any approach that "tends to overlay and obscure the realities of the message, and to blunt the edge of their application, it is ungodly and wrong" (quoting Packer) (pg 258).
f.) Discipling (pg 261-271).
g.) Watching and Warning (pg 272-283) [note: this was one of the most important chapters in the book as this is a pastoral responsibility that is so often ignored]. Pastors are to be vigilant as a watchman, guarding against spiritual predators and false teachers (Titus 1:0, Acts 20, 2 Peter, Jude).
h.) Observing the two ordinances of the Lord's Supper and Baptism (pg 284-297).
 
Very relevant  Sep 17, 2007
This book is a great resource for any pastor's library. It goes through step by step on how to be an effective pastor and how to nurture the congregation into sheep worthy of the Good Shepherd.
