Your call to be a pastor appoints you to a caring office that ministers to people's needs. This first volume from respected theologian Thomas Oden's Classical Pastoral Care series, Becoming a Minister is concerned with helping you understand your role as caregiver as you are called into ministry. Presenting selected short texts from writers predating the eighteenth century, this volume discusses the call to the caring office; the way this inner sense of calling is affirmed in ordination; orders of ministry; the shepherding metaphor; authorization to servant ministry; women in ministry; preparation for ministry through study and spiritual formation, and more.

About Classical Pastoral Care

Classical Pastoral Care presents selected short texts from writers predating the eighteenth century. Pride of place is given to patristic sources, although medieval and Reformation authors are scarecely overlooked. Concise introductions preface thoroughly organized thematic sections; each text is linked with companion texts through insightful analysis.
