Letters to Timothy is John Bisagno's retirement gift to younger and older pastors alike. A practical manual, filled with useful advice, it covers all aspects of pastoral life for churches of all sizes, locations, and denominations, addressing the “things that might have fallen through the cracks in seminary.”
My prayer is that an entire new generation of pastors and church planters will use this book to develop the necessary perspective, convictions, character, and skills needed for ministry in the 21st century from this giant of the 20th century.
— Rick Warren, Author, The Purpose Driven Church
John Bisagno spent nearly fifty years in ministry and retired in 2000 from the First Baptist Church in Houston, Texas. He started out in ministry as a trumpet-playing music evangelist and soon felt called into the preaching ministry as an evangelist, only later becoming a pastor. After retirement, he continued to occasionally preach both in the United States and abroad.
