The Call to Joy and Pain, by Ajith Fernando

The Call to Joy and Pain looks like a great book from Ajith Fernando. It has just been honored among the 2008 Christianity Today Book Award recipients under the category of “The Church/Pastoral Leadership.”

Congratulations to Dr. Fernando and Crossway!

The title captures the Pauline experience of being “sorrowful and yet always rejoicing.” I’m eager to get a chance to read this book. . .

    Dr. Hamilton,

    I just picked this book up after attending the National Resurgence Conference in Seattle three weeks ago. I’m also very eager to begin reading as the Lord is teaching me much about the joy and pain of ministry right now.

    I also purchased Crossway’s John Newton: From Disgrace to Amazing Grace and Memoirs of An Ordinary Pastor.

    If I can ever complete my Hebrew studies, I’ll let you know my thoughts on these books.🙂
