Item description for In Jars of Clay: Reflections on the Art of Pastoring by Roger Kruger...
In Jars of Clay is an edifying, elegantly literate piece, offering a sensitive look into the heart of a pastor's calling. In In Jars of Clay, Kruger writes, "These reflections touch on a variety of subjects relating to the personal, pastoral, and spiritual needs of ministry. They provide no easy answers, for if there is one thing I have learned, it is difficult enough just to learn the questions." With warmth and wisdom, Kruger's reflections resonate with the profound simplicity of this realization. His meditations on the roundness of life and one's experience with God employ parables and imagery of Kruger's own that gracefully explore the considerations of the clergy, from personal exhortation to the care of the parish. In Jars of Clay is at once lighthearted and earnest, contemporary as well as rooted in rich tradition.

Pastors Will Be Strengthened By Reading In Jars of Clay Apr 7, 2008
Roger Kruger has written a book that not only describes the "art of pastoring," directed to those ministering in parish settings, but he also gives reflections on this calling from his own perspective as a pastor to several congregations and later as a pastor to other clergy. Reading this book would also benefit those in related care-giving professions, not just ordained church workers.
Each of the 9 chapters has significant conceptual and practical information--something of value for anyone serving people in need. I found Chapter 4 "Armed with Forgiveness" and Chapter 6 "Loving the Church" to be of particular interest and spiritually enriching for me in my laity ministry tasks. Pastors and leaders, this book has real answers!
