The Reformed Pastor

I finished my second time through the book (in about 10 years) recently. If you haven't read it and you're thinking about the ministry, put this at the top of your list! It will inspire and humble you!

"One of the best known classics on the work of the Christian ministry. Is a most extraordinary performance, and should be read by every young minister, before he takes a people under his stated care; and, I think, the practical part of it reviewed every three or four years; for nothing would have a greater tendency to awaken the spirit of a minister to that zeal in his work, for want of which many good men are but shadows of what (by the blessing of God) they might be, if the maxims and measures laid down in that incomparable Treatise were strenuously pursued." - Philip Doddridge
