The Renewed Pastor
Writings in Honour of Philip Hacking
Edited by Melvin Tinker
Philip Hacking celebrated his 80th birthdayin 2011 and this book is a demonstration of our appreciation of his ministry. Philip was presented with the book on Sunday December 11th at Christ Church Fulwood. The Reform Council was very much behind the creation of this book.
Each of the chapters deals with an aspect of the the pastor's ministry: the pastor renewed, the pastor at prayer, the pastor as theologian, preacher and evangelist; the pastor and worship, the pastor and baptism, the pastor and church planting, the pastor and church growth, the pastor and student ministry, the pastor and gospel partnership, the pastor as evangelical and Anglican.
Contributors: Hugh Palmer, Melvin Tinker, Peter Lewis, Tim Chester, Steve Timmis, Peter Adam, Paul Williams, D. A. Carson, J. I. Packer, Frank Retief, David Holloway, John Risbridger, John Stevens, Gerald Bray.
"Here then is a book which I believe touches on so many issues that have been close to Philip's heart throughout his ministry, and which need to be close to the hearts of any pastor today."
Hugh Palmer, Rector, All Souls Langham Place, London
