Ministry can be brutal. As leaders, we face discouragement, frustration and exhaustion - and many times we face it alone. Helping us to refocus our gaze on the gospel, Pastor Jared Wilson offers here practical insights, real-life anecdotes, and in-your-face truth related to the ups and downs of pastoral ministry.
Honest yet hopeful, this creative fusion of biblical exposition and personal confession will help pastors weather the storms of ministry by rooting their identity in Christ.
"It ought to go without saying that pastors who preach the gospel need the gospel desperately themselves - but it doesn't. In The Pastor's Justification, Jared Wilson boldly reminds ministers where their true measure of success and fulfillment is found. This book will help shepherd shepherds back to the confidence and humility found only in Jesus."?
