The Grace of it All: Reflections on the Art of Ministry

Written by a Lutheran pastor with more than forty years experience in the Chicago area, who moved in retirement into seminary teaching in this country and Eastern Europe, this is a wisdom-filled book.  Author F. Dean Lueking’s Preface begins: “A treasure has been given to me, one that I want to share.”  That treasure is “the grace of it all”, the years of witnessing God’s goodness at work in the lives of people.  He assures readers that he intends “neither to romanticize nor to minimize the demands made on clergy today, but to encourage all who have a part in the pastoral calling.”  Particularly helpful chapters include “Pastor and People” and “Turning Conflict into Ministry”.  (The Alban Institute)
