Details

Recognizing the need for pastors and scholars to embody both theological depth and practical focus, John Piper and D. A. Carson have boldly used their careers to advance role of pastor as theologian and of theologian as pastor.

In The Pastor as Scholar and the Scholar as Pastor, Carson and Piper draw on personal anecdotes and their own reflections in order to help others think holistically and biblically about the roles of the pastor and theologian, as well as how the two coalesce. Insightful and balanced, this book is a critical guide for all those who wish to embody these roles faithfully.
