How can a pastor, whether fresh out of training or with many years of experience, be effective in his ministry?
Thomas Murphy, a renowned Presbyterian minister from the late 1800s set out to answer that question in this book.
Being effective starts with the pastor’s close personal relationship with God, so Murphy spends time exhorting pastors to make their relationship with God paramount in their ministry and teaching them how they should cultivate it over time.
Murphy also offers solid and thorough advice on preaching, ministering to the church, ministering to the community and ministering to society.
