From 1978 to 1998, Pastor A.N. Martin taught Pastoral Theology in the Trinity Ministerial Academy, a church-based ministerial training institution. Every Friday throughout the academic year, all the students would gather for two hours of teaching presented in a four-year cycle. Subsequently various series of the audiotapes were widely circulated. Many expressed their desire to see these lectures printed. As an intermediate step in responding to that desire, Pastor Martin taught his entire Pastoral Theology course “one more time” and the transcriptions of these lectures constituted the basis for these printed lectures. Within these lectures there are very few issues faced by the ordinary pastor that are not addressed in one way or another.
