Pastors will benefit from the simplicity and exuberance conveyed throughout this book and expressed in the author’s opening statement: ‘There is nothing more awe-inspiring and more blessed than the service of pastorship.” First published in Russia in the 1930s, this volume nevertheless retains the essence of pastoral work in ever-changing circumstances and cultures: the formation and eternal destiny of the human soul. The author passionately writes about this unchanging ministry, and his words remain refreshingly timely, especially in an era marked by temptations to follow material excess and success.
