There is a paradoxical yet paradigmatic approach to pastoring. On one hand, we experience the mountaintop moments of joy. On the other hand, we travel the dismal dark valley of pain, frustration, and disappointment. We often struggle with the bipolarization regarding the very essence and nature of our work. Yet there is a yearning in the soul of every pastor to hear from the greatest pastor that ever lived and the one we must give an account to for our work. Amid the many struggles of pastoral practice and process, Dr. Edward B. Saxon provides pastors with reflective insights from the chief shepherd, Jesus Christ, to accomplish the herculean task.
