The calling to the pastorate is one fraught with perils and privileges. The urgent needs of the church often cause dismissal of personal soul issues. And he who isn't 'fed' will find it hard to 'feed' others. Alistair Begg and Derek Prime have been successful pastors and teachers of pastors for many decades. They challenge those who feel called to preaching ministry to a proper stewardship of life, a deeper love for the Lord, a personal devotional life, purity, and time for study and preparation. But most of all, they help future pastors determine whether they are really called to a life of ministry, warning that if one can avoid preaching, he must!
