Quick overview When we think of the apostle Paul, 'pastor' is not usually the first word that springs to mind. He may seem too intellectual, too tempestuous and fiery, even too determinedly pioneering, to fall into the 'pastoral' category. He was an apostle, prophet, evangelist, teacher - but he was also a pastor.
£8.99

When we think of the apostle Paul, 'pastor' is not usually the first word that springs to mind. He may seem too intellectual, too tempestuous and fiery, even too determinedly pioneering, to fall into the 'pastoral' category. This book demonstrates that, at heart, Paul was indeed too multi-faceted in both background and ministry to be defined by a single function. He was an apostle, prophet, evangelist, teacher - but he was also a pastor, as emerges from reading the epistles that record his teaching and care of the churches he planted or nurtured. Author Patrick Whitworth makes the case for Paul's extraordinary teaching - for which he is justifiably most celebrated - being a product of his pastoral care, which was itself a product of his pioneering and prophetic evangelism. Perhaps he was an unlikely pastor, but he was above all passionate, and an inspiration to pastors everywhere, to be studied and emulated, fathomed and then followed. The book includes a study guide with a wealth of questions for group discussion linked to each chapter.
