VINE VOICEon 11 August 2011
Theological academia and pastoral praxis can be unintentional enemies of each other. Piper & Carson offer something meaningful here in the tension of this inbetween space. Paul rightly describes one of the offices of the church as "Pastor-Teacher" in Ephesians 4. Both Jesus and Paul were able scholars in their own right, yet cared deeply in ways which are vital models for pastoral leadership today. Many have the impression that all the pastor needs is a Bible and the Holy Spirit. There is a certain populist appeal, but it leads to unprepared pastors doing serious damage in churches. Faith and feeling, reason and response were some of the treasures of this quality if but brief title.

Theses are original talks reskinned in a book format and with other authors included readers might well feel cheated of the Piper and Carson authorial emphasis, as they only submit one chapter each! Undoubtedly an encouragement to good scholarship in the pastorate, or pastoral concern in the academy. Truly unique and fresh!

This book helps bring the tensions between a scholar who is a pastor, and a pastor who is a scholar come together. In other words, how do I fit good Evangelical scholarship and pastoral work together, and vice - versa. I found it very helpful.
