Item Description...
Here is a textbook for students of pastoral ministry and a handbook for pastors outlining the three tasks of pastoral ministry.

Publishers Description

Shepherding God s Flock is both a textbook for students of pastoral ministry and a handbook for pastors. Jay Adams is well-known for his practical and thorough approach to the many issues of Christian counseling. That same practicality and thoroughness is found in this unparalleled handbook on pastoral ministry. Not only does it offer pastors one of the best resources in print, but it also provides church elders with an orientation and practical guide to aspects of ministry for which they have responsibility. It is truly a shepherd s handbook. The book is divided into three parts. Pastoral Life deals with the pastor, his calling, and the general care he provides the flock. Pastoral Counseling provides an overview of the task and a general approach for pastoral counselors. Pastoral Leadership offers a perspective on the ways the pastor can lead the church in its many tasks and responsibilities."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Handbook for Pastors  Dec 27, 2006
Essentially a handbook for pastors as well as a textbook for students of pastoral ministry, the work is divided into three sections: Pastoral Life which deals with the calling and general life of the pastor, Pastoral Counseling and Pastoral Leadership. This is an exhaustive without being exhausting as we are treated to an extensive tour of all of the different areas of ministry.

There is a two-fold perspective at work as Adams directs his book both to those pastors already in church ministry as well as to those who are preparing for such ministry. The approach presented is of the leader who acts as a motivator and director for other leaders within the church. "The pastor should repeatedly ask himself, `Is there someone else who could do this job?' and `Can someone else help me do this (or a part of it)'" (Page 416). Delegation is pictured throughout as the key to growing, healthy churches. But this delegation is not random or happenstance. It will be successful only insofar as it is planned. Otherwise it will not happen, or worse, it will happen in a shoddy manner.

Adams' insistence that pastors should do nearly all of their own counseling in conjunction with lay-counselors and that they should avoid referring their parishioners to counselors outside of their own local church seems to be extreme.

Adam's advice for bringing about elder participation into the ministry of the church is to "start small. Begin with some easily attainable short-term goal, to take a step in the right direction.. Find persons who are ready to cooperate or who could be successfully challenged to do so and start with them." (Page 194). This is a good formula for bringing any type of change into a church.

"A church that makes no attempt to promote Christian communication will discover that communication will take place anyway. To state the problem simply: if the communication that exists is not carefully established and maintained as Christian communication, then the sort of communication that develops will tend to be non-Christian communication; gossip, slander, half-truths will flow quickly along the grapevine." (Page 380).
