Review: Dangerous Calling

Dangerous Calling: Confronting the Unique Challenges of Pastoral Ministry - Paul David Tripp

I can see how this book would be immensely helpful and convicting of ministry leaders. I enjoyed it, but it's lessons and message have been internalized in my life over time. Tripp counsels ministers to be real, to be authentic, to be vulnerable. I hurt for those who are still playing spiritual games and not aware of their desperate need for daily dependence on God. I would recommend this book, but with caveats.
