Reviews - What do customers think about The Soul of Ministry: Forming Leaders for God's People?
Makes theology understandable and applicable May 7, 2007
This is a great book to read as an introduction or transition into theological studies that can be applied to the everyday ministries of the church. I highly recommend this book.
A Completely OTHER Kind of Leadership Book! Nov 11, 2002
"What is ministry?" That is the question Ray Anderson uses to begin his book, The Soul of Ministry. From that simple beginning flows Andersons profound insights into ministry starting with "Ministry As Theological Task".
The first four chapters of the book build the theoretical base for the rest of the book. The reader is introduced at this early point to the specialized vocabulary of Anderson's theology of ministry: Inner logic, praxis, telos, poiesis, discernment, and theological antecedent. Not that these are new terms, but Anderson refines them in a way that allows us to see an important point: "All ministry is God's ministry from the very beginning."
Thought provoking and empowering Jun 12, 1999
Ray Anderson writes with great passion. His theology is very pastoral and empowering. I would plead with all that find themselves in ministry to read this book. A great balance is struck between practical applicable ministry and though streching theology.
