"Lehman focuses on core ministry duties that are essential to the vocation of the pastor. While The Work of the Pastor will be especially beneficial for small church pastors, who frequently must meet the whole range of congregational expectations, it also offers words of advice and helpful perspectives for all pastors and for those who are contemplating pastoral ministry."--BOOK JACKET.
