A standard work in seminaries and a reliable guide for clergy in many denominations for over thirty years, The Christian Pastor has been revised to include up-to-date research on the role of pastors in contemporary life. In examining today's changing ministry, Wayne Oats makes use of recent psychological interpretations, and at the same time preserves the biblical and theological emphases of earlier editions.
