Reviews - What do customers think about Pastor's Manual?
Very general, broad-range book for pastors or ministers Feb 19, 2007
This volume is intended primarily for new Christian ministers or pastors. It tries to cover a lot of ground in a single book, and I think it would have been better to cover some topics separately. Funerals, weddings, and church business are all briefly covered, but each of these topics could fill an entire book. In my opinion, the most useful portion is the section on Funerals, which is rarely covered elsewhere.

NOT WHAT I EXPECTED Nov 30, 2002
This book did not cover enough topics. It seemed to be restricted to the point where it seemed to be written in A OLD FASHIONED WAY THAT it over looked today problems.
