Here is a unique and timely book... David Hegg has done a great service to the church by tackling this matter with biblical clarity and warm pastoral concern...The ease with which it is possible to read this book belies the depth of the insight which it contains. As you read it you will want to pause often, turning to the various passages of Scripture and taking time to think through the implications of these most vital truths."
Alistair Begg, Senior Pastor, Parkside Church, Chagrin Falls, Ohio
"David Hegg has earned the right to address us on the topic. As an ordination mentor, he sees a procession of individuals who desire to be effective pastors... Whether you are considering the pastorate, are already a pastor, or are leading pastors, the benefits of David's work will far outweigh the brief investment of time it takes to read it."
Steve Highfill, Team Leader, Evangelical Free Church of America West District
"If the faithful proclamation of God's message is to be valued by today's mass media, if the spiritual health of the church is to be treasured above interpreting marketing trends, if the inegrity of the leader is to be required above personal charisma and if these things are the highest priority of God... then the requirements and the procedures leading to ordination must be examined. David Hegg's book, Appointed to Preach, is a book long overdue. It should be in the hands of every person seeking ordination as well as local church leaders and denomination ordinations councils."
