Austin Tucker’s new book A Primer For Pastors: A Handbook for Strengthening Ministry Skills (Kregel) does exactly what the title implies: offers a survey of ministry issues and concerns for those new to ministry or preparing to enter ministry. From preaching to counseling to wedding and baptisms, Tucker takes young ministers through a “cooks tour” of what they will be facing in the years ahead. He writes out of rich experience, offering practical guidance with a gentle tone. Young ministers and students will find A Primer for Pastors to be a helpful guidebook to which they will turn again and again.
