The Teaching Minister

Front Cover
Westminster John Knox Press, Jan 1, 1991 - Religion - 138 pages

With concise and practical guidelines for recovering the identity of the church, Clark Williamson and Ronald Allen demonstrate that the central task of ministry is teaching the Christian faith. The authors believe that how well ministers understand what is required of them and how well they do what is required of them is part of the problem of churches today, as well as part of the solution.
