Description of Pastor's Handbook by John R. Bisagno
"Pastor's Handbook" is a major expansion and revision of author John Bisagno's previous work, Letters to Timothy, which collected more than one hundred brief chapters of practical insight for handling real life pastoral issues- "things that might have fallen through the cracks in seminary"-based on the author's fifty years in ministry. A decade into his retirement, Bisagno stills mentors young pastors and recognizes new challenges in this profession known for its high dropout rate. With that in mind, "Pastor's Handbook" adds helpful entries on such issues as "The Seeker Friendly Church," "Solving Worship Wars," "Multiple Campuses," "New Media," and "Home Groups" as well as "Internet Pornography," "Biblical Inerrancy," "Calvinism," "The High Cost of Overnight Change," "Homosexuality," "Christianity and Islam," and more than a dozen other topics. He also refreshes several of the original chapters, factoring in new world issues and his survey of pastoral colleagues.
