I just started reading this book (signed by the author) and have found it an excellent read not just for Pastors but for anyone who works with people.
Some of the characteristics are not new, but for me they were very refreshing and challenging. In this book, authors Mannoia and Walkemeyer examine the foundations of pastoral effectiveness and bring together nine experienced pastoral leaders to discuss the basic characteristics that exist in effective pastors.
If you are a reader, you defintely need to add this book to your library. It’s an encouraging book thats helps to evaluate yourself and your ministry.
