THE PASTOR'S BOOK: A Comprehensive and Practical Guide to Pastoral Ministry
R. Kent Hughes & Douglas Sean O'Donnell

Pastors are tasked with the incredibly demanding job of caring for the spiritual, emotional, and, at times‚ physical needs of their people. While seminary is helpful preparation for many of the challenges pastors face, there’s far more to pastoral ministry than what can be covered in the classroom. Designed as a reference guide for nearly every situation a pastor will face, this comprehensive book by seasoned pastors Kent Hughes and Doug O’Donnell is packed full of biblical wisdom and practical guidance related to the reality of pastoral ministry in the trenches. From officiating weddings to conducting funerals to visiting the sick, this book will equip pastors and church leaders with the knowledge they need to effectively minister to their flocks, both within the walls of the church and beyond.

Authors

R. Kent Hughes (DMin, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School) is senior pastor emeritus of College Church in Wheaton, Illinois, and visiting professor of practical theology at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Hughes is also a founder of the Charles Simeon Trust, which conducts expository preaching conferences throughout North America and worldwide. He serves as the series editor for the Preaching the Word commentary series and is the author or coauthor of many books. He and his wife, Barbara, live in Wyncote, Pennsylvania, and have four children and an ever-increasing number of grandchildren.

Douglas Sean O'Donnell (MAs, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and Wheaton College) is a senior lecturer in biblical studies and practical theology at Queensland Theological College in Brisbane, Australia, after spending nearly twenty years in pastoral ministry. He is currently obtaining his doctorate at Trinity College Bristol through the University of Aberdeen. He is the author of a number of books, including The Beginning and End of Wisdom, The Song of Solomon and Matthew in the Preaching the Word commentary series, and Psalms in the Knowing the Bible series.

Endorsements

“Everyday Latin phrases spring to mind to describe The Pastor’s Book: It is a magnum opus—a major work for all ministers, incorporating one and a half lifetimes of gathered pastoral resources. It will be a vade mecum—the go-to book and faithful companion for younger ministers, to guide, inform, and sometimes correct and restrain. It should prove to be a sine qua non for all who are engaged in gospel ministry over the long haul—the very book needed to help re-calibrate and refresh. These pages constitute a love-gift to their fellow under-shepherds from Kent Hughes and Douglas Sean O’Donnell. They have put all who love Christ’s church in their lasting debt.” —Sinclair B. Ferguson, Professor of Systematic Theology, Redeemer Seminary, Dallas, Texas

“This is an immensely helpful, Scripture-saturated resource for busy pastors, explaining the practical ‘how to’s’ of leading weddings, funerals, baptisms, the Lord’s Supper, personal counseling, and weekly worship services. It reflects the accumulated wisdom of decades of ministry, and it comes from the pen of a godly, wise senior pastor for whom I have the highest appreciation and respect.” —Wayne Grudem, Research Professor of Theology and Biblical Studies, Phoenix Seminary

“Pastors must be prepared for almost any imaginable situation. From weekly sermons and counseling to hospital visitations and funerals, the pastoral tasks vary from day to day, even from hour to hour. Kent Hughes provides the type of theologically rich handbook every minister needs on his shelf. Hughes is a sagacious guide to the many facets of pastoral ministry, and his program for ministry is deeply rooted in Scripture. I am confident that pastors will be greatly served by this book and better equipped for faithful ministry in every avenue of life.” —R. Albert Mohler Jr., President and Joseph Emerson Brown Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

The Poor Man's Old Testament Commentary
Robert Hawker

"Gentleman, if you want something full of marrow and fatness, cheering to your own hearts by way of comment, and likely to help you in giving your hearers rich expositions, buy Dr. Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary. Dr. Hawker was the very least of commentators in the matter of criticism, but he sees Jesus, and that is a sacred gift which is most precious whether the owner be a critic or no. There is always such a savor of the Lord Jesus Christ in Dr. Hawker that you cannot read him without profit." - Charles H. Spurgeon from "Commenting on Commentaries"

""Robert Hawker's Poor Man's Commentary edifies believers by providing spiritual comments on each section of Scripture. The prayerful 'reflections' section that follows Hawker's comments on each chapter of Scripture marvelously enhances this devotional character. For the genuine Christian, here is devotional writing at its best: warmly Christ-centered, eminently practical, personally searching. I commend it highly for private and family worship." - Joel Beeke, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, MI

IN THE LORD I TAKE REFUGE: 150 Daily Devotions through the Psalms
DANE C. ORTLUND

Experience the Depth of the Psalms with Pastor and Author Dane Ortlund

The Psalms could be called the Bible’s devotional. Each psalm reflects on the greatness of who God is and how he cares for his people. Written with profound emotion, each psalm sheds light on the raw experiences of the human heart, revealing how God’s people should turn to him in times of anguish, pain, remorse, joy, and thanksgiving.

In the Lord I Take Refuge invites readers to experience the Psalms in a new way through heartfelt devotional content written by Dane Ortlund. Each reading is short enough to read in five minutes or less and will encourage believers to thoughtfully ponder and pray through each of the 150 Psalms. To further enhance the reading experience, this book features the full text of the English Standard Version Psalms; a large font; and thick, cream-colored paper. All of these features, along with a helpful introduction on how to read the Psalms devotionally, encourage believers to pause and reflect on the riches of each text as they commune daily with the Lord.

“Here it is! A devotional book based on the Bible’s own devotional book. It is an idea so obvious we may have missed it because—unlike our spiritual forefathers, who often read through the book of Psalms every week—we have allowed ourselves to be obsessed with the short term and the quick fix and to become devoted to the latest thing. But now the author whose Gentle and Lowly has helped so many to see Christ more clearly takes us gently by the hand to Jesus’s own devotional manual, the prayer book he loved, and the blueprint for his own life and ministry, and leads us to him all over again, day after day. Thank you, Dane Ortlund, for more treasure!” --Sinclair B. Ferguson, Chancellor’s Professor of Systematic Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary; Teaching Fellow, Ligonier Ministries

“A book like this is hard to find: not a commentary on the Psalms but a brief model, from a trusted voice, on how to meditate on them. Come to be fed by Dane’s meditations and learn how to meditate for yourself; to take a word or phrase in context and linger over it to obtain food, in Christ, for your soul; and to enrich and deepen your own communion with Christ in the Bible’s songbook. Take up and feed.” --David Mathis, Senior Teacher and Executive Editor, desiringGod.org; Pastor, Cities Church, Saint Paul, Minnesota; author, Habits of Grace

“This world has beauty and delight as well as brokenness and pain. As joy and sorrow mingle together, we long for words to express both our cries for deliverance and our songs of rejoicing. Dane Ortlund’s new devotional, In the Lord I Take Refuge, invites us to commune with God through the words of the Psalms. These encouraging daily reflections will guide your prayers, refresh your heart, and strengthen your soul as you walk with God in the ups and downs of life.” --Melissa B. Kruger, Director of Women’s Initiatives, The Gospel Coalition; author, Growing Together

“This devotional book beautifully reminds us that we need no better devotional material than the Psalms themselves. Dane Ortlund is pointing the way, serving as a wise and restrained guide to help us enter and join the prayers and praises of the psalter. He never fails to point us to Christ, the Savior who shines through the Psalms from beginning to end.” --Kathleen Nielson, author; speaker; Senior Adviser, The Gospel Coalition

“This is a book to keep by your bed, to begin or end each day feeding on these words God has given to us to pray and sing back to him. Dane’s brief insights into each psalm help us to bridge the gap between the psalmist’s time and our own, between his battles, questions, joys, desires, and laments and our own, leading us to love and worship.” --Nancy Guthrie, Bible teacher; author, Even Better than Eden



Dane C. Ortlund (PhD, Wheaton College) serves as senior pastor of Naperville Presbyterian Church in Naperville, Illinois. He is the author of Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers and Deeper: Real Change for Real Sinners. Dane and his wife, Stacey, have five children.

A PATHWAY INTO THE PSALTER: The Psalms: Their History, Teachings and Use
William Binnie

"A highly valuable work. It is not an exposition, but can readily be used as such, for it possesses a good index to the passages treated of. Dr. Binnie reviews with great skill and intense devotion the various sacred poems contained in the Book of Psalms, and gives the general run and character of each one. His work is unlike any other, and supplies a great desideratum." - C.H. Spurgeon, from 'Commenting & Commentaries'

"In the early part of the twenty-first century, we are inundated with works on the Psalms, both for an academic, and for a popular, audience. In addition, reprints of some of the old classics on the Psalms, such as Spurgeon's 'Treasury of David' are readily available. However, there is one nineteenth century work on the Psalms that is of great value to the preacher that has apparently not been reprinted since the late nineteenth century, the book noted above. It is, as the subtitle suggests, divided into three sections. The first deals with the historical development of the book, from the time of Moses (Psalm 90) down to the post-exilic period. The second section deals with the teachings, or as we would more likely say today the theology, of the Psalms. This includes very helpful treatments of the various ways in which the Messiah is set forth in the Psalms, as well as personal and social religion in the Psalms. In addition, Binnie treats the issue of the imprecatory Psalms in a useful manner. The final section traces the history of the use of the Psalms in both the Jewish and the Christian church." - Dr. Ben Shaw, Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary

THE PSALMS IN HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY
John Ker (1819-1886)

This little book in not a commentary on the Psalms, yet it is illustrative of their meaning and application to the human heart in all its experiences. By various incidents gathered from history and biography, the author shows what he terms the 'intense humanity' of the Psalms; how they have pervaded human life, and asserted their power to comfort the soul in all times of tribulation, and give wisdom to all who look for divine guidance; thus making for themselves a new record in the experience of Christian men and women, who have found in them the humblest expressions of penitence and the highest notes of praise which the human soul can utter. Every pastor will find this little volume helpful in the application of the Psalms to the devotional and practical duties of the Christian life.

"Dr. John Ker has left in this small volume a precious legacy to the Church. The whole is a book that the Bible student will prize as an indispensable companion to any or all of his commentaries on the Book of Psalms." - Kelso Chronicle

"A commentary on a new, striking, and marvelously interesting plan. The student, with this work in his hand, will find the Psalms a new book, and will receive a start on a new line of inquiry. The Introduction is in Dr. Ker's best style. We wish for it a very wide and long career of usefulness." - United Presbyterian Magazine

"This little book will be received with profound gratitude, and take its place among the most valued possessions of the Church. The Introduction, dealing with the biographical interest of the Psalms, their connection with Christ, and their influence on Christendom, is full of luminous thought and subtle penetration. No devout Christian should be without a copy of this choice and invaluable book." - The Baptist Magazine.

"This is a volume which is a fitting memorial to this poet preacher, who has just passed within the veil. The Introduction to this book is in itself a thing of beauty. Every page, and indeed every turn and expression, gleams and sparkles." - Dundee Advertiser

"We are thankful for this valuable and inspiring volume. It is a treasure and a treasury, containing, as it does, many incidents from history and biography which show the value of the Psalms to the soul of man, in the hours especially of its deepest sorrows or joys. We commend this work to our readers as one which is suited for the quiet home, and which will both strengthen their faith and brighten their hope. This volume will be welcomed by many, as at once full of instruction, reverence, insight, and spiritual stimulus, and as from the pen of one of the gifted sons of God." - Evangelical Repository

John Ker (1819-1886) minister and professor, was horn in Peeblesshire, brought up in Edinburgh; studied there and in Halle, was chosen to fill the chair of Practical Training in the U.P. Theological College in 1876.

THE PSALMS IN HUMAN LIFE: How God's People Have Feasted on the Psalter Through All Ages
Rowland E. Prothero

"The Psalms in Human Life by Rowland E. Porthero is a fascinating account of the varied ways in which the 150 Psalms have influenced, encouraged, challenged, and preserved God's people through the centuries. You will thank God for this book!" - David B. Calhoun

"The Psalms are a mirror in which each man sees the motions of his own soul. They express in exquisite words the kinship which every thoughtful human heart craves to find with a supreme, unchanging, loving God, who will be to him a protector, guardian, and friend. They utter the ordinary experiences, the familiar thoughts of men; but they give to these a width of range, an intensity, a depth, and an elevation which transcend the capacity of the most gifted. To collect together some of the countless instances in which the Psalms have guided, controlled, and sustained the lives of men and women in all ages of human history, and at all crises of their fate, is the purpose of this book." - The Author's Introduction

Rowland Edmund Prothero (1851 - 1937) was a british agriculturist, editor, and writer. He edited "The Quarterly Review" (1894-99) and was president of the Board of Agriculture (1916-19). Among his books are "Pioneers and Progress of English Farming" (1887), "Life and Correspondence of Dean Stanley" (1893), and "The Land and Its people (1925). "Psalms in Human Life" went through 29 editions between 1903 and 1920 alone.

THE SERMONS OF REV. JOHN KER
A Series of Two Volumes
John Ker

John Ker (1819-1886) was a minister and professor, was born in Peeblesshire and brought up in Edinburgh. He studied there and in Halle, and was chosen to fill the chair of Practrical Training in the United Presbyterianh Theological College in 1876. He wrote the volume "The Psalms in History and Biography" which was recently published by Solid Ground.

"Take it all in all, we do not know any volume of sermons superior to these in the English language. Others may surpass them in some single feature of excellence, but in the manifold combination of merits they possess we could not name any that take their rank above them within the whole compass of our religious literature." - Edinburgh Review

"Those of the sermons which the author had definitely laid aside for publication show that, as in the former series (that is Volume One), he aimed at a variety of topics, which would furnish the doubting, the afflicted, the old, the young, the thoughtful and the heedless, with their portion of meat in due season." - From the Preface to Volume Two

WHEN PAIN IS REAL AND GOD SEEMS SILENT: Finding Hope in the Psalms
Ligon Duncan with Foreword by Mark Dever

"In the midst of our suffering we need a wake-up call to the truth that God’s steadfast love never ceases.” —Dave Furman, Senior Pastor, Redeemer Church of Dubai; author, Being There and Kiss the Wave

Are you feeling despondent, depressed, or discouraged? When we encounter severe trials and suffering, we are often tempted to think

that our situation is somehow out of God’s hands. In these dark times, God seems silent, and we feel isolated, confused, and alone. Everyone experiences suffering; even the biblical writers expressed anguish at times. This emotion is clearly captured in the Psalms. Through these brief meditations on Psalms 88 and 89, Ligon Duncan shows us how to respond to our own suffering with the assurance of our heavenly Father’s mercy, which sustains us even in the darkest circumstances.

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Foreword by Mark Dever

1 Psalm 88

2 Psalm 89

Notes

General Index

Scripture Index

“The Bible is strikingly candid about human suffering, including the vexing reality that God’s own people suffer—and often suffer excruciatingly and lastingly. Where do we find help? Ligon Duncan, one of the most faithful Christian teachers of our time, takes us deeply into the Psalms in a book that will be of great encouragement to all believers. I am so thankful for Ligon Duncan’s devotion to God’s word and the care of souls. Read this book, and you will understand why.” -R. Albert Mohler Jr., President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

“Here is a book that is short enough for the person who is gripped by suffering to actually read and yet rich enough to meet that individual’s need for perspective and hope in the darkest of times.” - Nancy Guthrie, Bible teacher; author, Hearing Jesus Speak into Your Sorrow

“Ligon Duncan shows us beautifully how, even in our deepest despair, we can have hope in God. We can run to him because he cares and understands. Through this book, Duncan continually lifts our gaze and reminds us that no matter our circumstances, our great God is sympathetic, sovereign, and sufficient. Read this book for yourself, or make it a gift to those struggling in their suffering. Here’s the truth: You are not alone. The Lord knows, and he hears.” -Greg Gilbert, Senior Pastor, Third Avenue Baptist Church, Louisville, Kentucky

“Psalms of lament are missing in the church and in most believers’ prayers. Ligon Duncan helps us recover this historic language in his careful and thoughtful examination of these two important psalms. Overflowing with pastoral instinct, rich exposition, and helpful application, this short book on Psalms 88 and 89 is long overdue.” -Mark Vroegop, Lead Pastor, College Park Church, Indianapolis; author, Dark Clouds, Deep Mercy: Discovering the Grace of Lament

THE PSALMS: Language for All Seasons of the Soul
by Bruce Waltke, Walter Kaiser, John Piper, Mark Futato, Hassell Bullock, David Howard

A "snapshot" collection of the most current scholarly work on the Psalter. Covering five broad areas--- a 21st-century overview; praise; lament; survey of the Psalter as a book; and sample sermons---these essays are presented by distinguished scholars including Bruce Waltke, Francis Kimmitt, Robert Chisholm, Walter Kaiser, Daniel Estes, Robert Cole, John Piper, and others. 336 pages, softcover from Moody.

The book is divided into five sections that:

PART ONE: PSALMS STUDIES IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY, Where We Have Been and Where We Are Going

PART TWO: PSALMS OF PRAISE: Expressing Our Joy

PART THREE: PSALMS OF LAMENT: Expressing Our Sorrow and Pain

PART FOUR: CONSIDERING THE CANON: The Psalter as a Book

PART FIVE: COMMUNICATING THE PSALMS: Bringing the Psalms into the Present Day

ENDORSEMENTS

"The Psalms: Language for All Seasons of the Soul is the product of a magnificent collaboration of evangelical scholars in their careful reading and exegesis of select Psalms of various genres, reading the psalter as a whole book, and profound reflection on the meaning and preaching of the Psalms. It is an impressive book that will serve well as a textbook for classes on the Psalms, exposing students to the best of scholarship in the field as well as the spirituality of the Psalter itself." -Richard E. Averbeck, Professor of Old Testament and Semitic Languages,Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, Illinois

"The Psalter has always been an essential theological and spiritual resource for Christians seeking to live faithfully. Showcasing the best in evangelical scholarship this present volume not only orients readers to key issues in the recent study of the Psalms, but unpacks the power of these ancient poems for contemporary living. Whether you read and use the Psalter on a regular basis or avoid it through fear or confusion, this volume will capture your imagination for the potential of psalms for sharpening your theology and deepening your faith." -Mark J. Boda, Professor of Old Testament, McMaster Divinity College, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

"This book is a wonderful reflection of the Psalms themselves, exploring in cascading waves the same fundamental issues: God and his people, confidence and praise, sorrow and lament, life and death. Each article like each psalm has different, complementary insights, and each author like each psalmist has a living, interrogating, proclaiming faith. From the opening essays on biblical theology to the closing sermons, by way of the created world, the tension of pain and praise, the role of the king, and the formation of the psalter, these leading evangelical academics write from the heart as well as the head. Biblical study at its best!" -Philip S. Johnston, Senior Tutor, Hughes Hall & Member of the Faculty of Divinity, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, England

"The combination in this collection of technical studies, theological emphases, application discussions, and sermonic examples is brilliant. If you really want to understand and/or explain how and why the Psalms are so important to Christian faith and practice, get this book." - Douglas Stuart, Professor of Old Testament, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, Hamilton, Massachusetts
