Seminaries around the globe are full of bright and hopeful students eager to walk out of the classroom and step into ministry. These eager students are confident in what they are learning from assigned readings and classroom discussions, but when they discover the realities of ministry are not what they anticipated, discouragement sets in.
15 Things Seminary Couldn't Teach Me features contributions from 15 seasoned pastors, including Daniel L. Akin, Juan Sanchez, Phil A. Newton, Scott Sauls, and more providing, real-world advice about the highs and lows the first five years of pastoral ministry. Through these essays, the gap between seminary training and life in a local church closes in.
