Field Education turned into true Ministry Experience! Feb 17, 2009
Dr. George Hillman has compiled a work that puts all others out to pasture! As a Pastor and mentor to ministry interns, this work will replace my other field education "guides". The freshness of this work with an emphasis on Scripture, prayer, and focus on personal ministry will renew your passion to mentor those heading into ministry. Part 3 alone is worth the book price! Hillman has gathered credible, trustworthy, and competent contributors which makes "Preparing for Ministry" a must have for any serious Ministry mentor... and the bibliography of recommended reading? WOW! Well done.
