The art of pastoring is believed by many pastors and ministry students because of what its not. It is not a book about how to grow your church. Its not about how to lead like a business person or an entrepreneur. This is a book about the heart of pastoral ministry.

Jesus before Christianity
With a new preface by the author NOLAN’S portrait of Jesus introduces us to the man as he was before he became enshrined in doctrine, dogma, and ritual, a man deeply involved with the real problems of his time—Which are the real problems of our time as Well. As the author says, “Nothing about Jesus will be presupposed or assumed... My interest is in the man as he was before he became the object of Christian faith.”
As we journey deeper in the Christian pilgrimage, we come to realize that the Christian life is more than merely replicating particular spiritual disciplines or practices. We begin to understand that at the core of Christian faith is the transformation of our identity. Robert Mulholland exposes the false selves that we hide behind and helps us discover the true self that comes from being hidden with Christ in God. If the goal of the Christian journey is Christlikeness, then We must reckon with the unhealthy Ways that We root our sense of intimacy and abandonment to God. Along the way, We Will discover a growing sense of intimacy and abandonment to God. Not only will We encounter the joy of discovering our own self, We will also ﬁnd a greater love for others and compassion for the World.
Hope in the Age of Despair
“The Gospel that we preach will not be a Gospel of Jesus Christ unless it takes sides with those who are sinned against—the poor and the oppressed. ” In these writings, Albert Nolan, best-selling author of Jesus Before Christianity and Jesus Today, outlines the basis of a theology and a spirituality that side with the poor and the cause of justice. Many of these pieces were forged in the long struggle against the apartheid system of South Africa. But his work transcends the South African situation to speak to all Christians living in a world marked by inequality, violence and exploitation. His theme is not simply one of resistance. He also challenges us to embrace the spirituality of Jesus, showing how the saving power of God may empower us to achieve personal liberation and contribute to the creation of structures of grace.
