Work of the Pastor
This book has earned the place as a modern classic on preaching and ministry.
William Still was minister of the Gilcomston Church of Scotland from 1945 until 1997. His ministry had a strong emphasis on Biblically based expository preaching.
"A Great little book by a remarkable missionary to whom I owe an immense personal debt. Every minister should read it once a year - at least!"
Sinclair B. Ferguson, Associate Preacher, St Peter's Free Church, Dundee
"A tried and proven theology of pastoral care based on belief that the whole word of God proclaimed and applied is sufficient to meet dynamically the pastoral needs of God's people. In an age when methods often take preference over theology, this book is an important and timely reminder of the essential priorities of the ministry."
"The fact that this book has already gone into several editions has something important to say. It contains the distilled wisdom of many years of fruitful ministry, and shoould be in the hands of every true minister of the gospel."
"The chapters are based on five addresses given to students in 1964 and 1965. Here is an important and timely reminder of the essential priorities of ministry which should be read by every minister."
Very wise counsel from an experienced man. I heard Willie Still preach several times whislt studying in Aberdeen and regard him as Scotland's Martyn Lloyd-Jones. This book gives his practical wisdom on this ministry and I particularly liked the chapter about being contemporary - as he pointed out, many of us 'reformed' men tend to get stuck in the 17th century!
