Overview In a warm, conversational style Wiersbe explains what to do--and how to evaluate it--when one pursues the service of God.
Publishers Description Sometimes people lose sight of the core of their ministry. They feel overwhelmed by the needs that surround them on a daily basis. Wise and beloved pastor Warren Wiersbe invites ministry leaders to listen in on thirty short "armchair chats" to encourage and strengthen them for service. He shares what he wishes he had known about ministering to others when he began his own Christian pilgrimage. "Ministry," he says, "takes place when divine resources meet human needs through loving channels to the glory of God." With this new edition of a classic book, which includes a foreword by Jim Cymbala, the next generation of ministry leaders can take advantage of Wiersbe's years of wisdom.

This Guy Really Gets It Apr 22, 2004
I was doing some research for a book project and found that this book by Wiersbe was often quoted. So, I picked up the book for myself and soon found out why it was so popular among pastors and lay leaders.
Weirsbe delivers a warm, easy-to-read primer on following God. The Christian life is really about sacrifice and service. Why are we here? For ourselves or to glorify our God?
Whether you're a pastor or a plumber, a songleader or a salesman, this is a great book to read if you're heart's desire is to be a servant of God.
Excellent Read for the Pastor and Layperson! Mar 21, 2003
Wiersbe's book is a gem for the pastor and layperson. As mentioned in an earlier review, you will feel as if Wiersbe is right there beside you when reading the book. The conversational tone of the book makes it enjoyable to read.
Wiersbe also presents many excellent points, some of which are:
1. A sense of humor is necessary for the ministry. 2. Let books enrich your life and ministry. 3. The joy and fear of the Lord frees us from the fear of people. 4. Our loyaly to the Lord is reflected in how we treat others. 5. Do not fret about the future, for it belongs to God! 6. Do not let the devil get a stronghold in your life. 7. Our service should be based on obedience, not feelings.
All in all, an excellent and highly recommended read!
A goldmine of practical wisdom! Feb 13, 1999
This book is ideally suited for younger ministers or more experienced pastors who recognize their limits and their need for wisdom. I can hardly imagine any preacher, young or old, who would not benefit from reading this short book. Dr. Wiersbe gives us "down-to-earth" nuts and bolts type teaching here rather than the obscure ramblings so common in many handbooks and textbooks. While reading this book, I felt like I was "sitting down across a log" with a seasoned pastor, who gave me advice on everything from humor to finances to facing opposition. I kept my highlighter handy so I can refer back to this volume frequently. This is the type resource I NEED!
