Called To Shepherd

April 22, 2017

I have always found great value in utilizing devotional books aimed at a general audience but this January I decided to try an additional weekly devotional with the specific focus of those in Christian ministry and pastors. I selected CALLED TO SHEPHERD by John Crosby (Ambassador International Books, 2012. This collection contains 52 weekly devotional thoughts ranging from topics like prayer and family as well as ministry calling and handling conflicts and pressure. The readings are all short, focused on a specific text and geared toward ministry applications. My biggest problem was limiting myself to just one devotional reading per setting as my writing this review in late April after starting the 52 weeks of devotionals in January of 2017 🙂

I would encourage any one in ministry to pursue a specific devotional focused on pastors at least every so often to re-calibrate the specific ministry touch points of their lives as well as encouragment in the broader applications of the Christian Life.
