Follow Up on Pastoral Prep

Last week I asked you to help me develop a list of resources that would serve as an introduction to the ministry. You can read the original post here. 

Here is a list of most of the recommended resources. I’m not endorsing everything listed here because I haven’t read many of them. But I wanted to highlight what was suggested as worth while reading for people thinking about ministry. Thanks again for your help!
