Pages: 227


While many assume that pastors are the most spiritually-healthy people in churches, Paul David Tripp has discovered a serious problem within pastoral culture.

Unfortunately, much of pastoral culture is spiritually unhealthy, biblically inaccurate, and privately destructive. This unhealthy environment actively undermines the well-being and effectiveness of church leaders and, by extension, the entire church body.

There are unrealistic expectations placed on pastors by themselves, their congregation, and community. These expectations have caused many pastors to have horizontally focused identities and definitions of success based on external situations, experiences, and relationships.

Dangerous Calling diagnoses and offers cures for issues that impact every church leader and leader, giving solid strategies for fighting the all-important war that rages in our churches today. It reveals the truth that pastoral identity should be vertically focused on who you are in Christ and all of the practical and personal implications of that reality. This book will guide leaders in a much needed spiritual surgery on themselves so they can most effectively take up the dangerous calling of shepherding God’s people.
