Book Review - Dangerous Calling

Dangerous Calling

Confronting the Unique Challenges of Pastoral Ministry
By: Paul David Tripp

Book Review

I read this years ago shortly after it came out, and I read it this time as a part of a coaching program I am participating in. My feelings on the book are mixed. It does feel like a hyper critical book, but it points to common realities. It it is probably the most thorough diagnostic book I have read for the pastor to evaluate his heart. However, I can't shake the feeling that it is too heavy, too critical. That said, I suspect if I had visited all the churches that Tripp has visited and seen all that he has seen, I would want to communicate them as he has in this book.

So, I would call this book helpful, best in class, but not for everybody in all seasons of ministry.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.
