In a well-meaning attempt to share the gospel and to get people inside their doors, many churches have become seeker-sensitive, relying on tools such as popular events, programs, and snazzy marketing tools to help increase their numbers.
Some churches even play certain types of music and adapt specific dress codes to appeal to specific audiences.
Are these approaches biblical? Is this really what ministry is all about?
In his e-book Keeping Christ In Ministry, Dr. John H. Harbison explores these questions by taking an in-depth look into the heart of ministry. He examines 11 aspects of the ministry of Jesus Christ and discusses how Christ-followers are called to participate in each of them.
If you are a pastor, church worker, or serious bible student who is interested in learning more about what Christ-centered ministry entails or exploring some of the different roles that Jesus embodied during His time on earth, than you may find this book educational and informative.
If you are a more casual reader, however, this book may not appeal to you because Dr. Harbison’s treatment of the subject can be somewhat scholarly and dry at times.
The book also addresses spiritual gifts and is theologically conservative in its approach.
