Any minister who has experienced times of disappointment and discouragement—and that includes anyone who has been in ministry longer than six months—will benefit from The Resurrection of Ministry: Serving in the Hope of the Risen Lord (IVP) by Andrew Purves. He reminds us that even when we struggle in ministry—with a sense of emptiness akin to the Saturday before Easter Sunday—we nevertheless minister in light of His resurrection. As he notes, “because Jesus has a resurrected ministry, we have a ministry that is entirely oriented around His living ministry.”
