If you are total pragmatist when it comes to ministry, you won’t like this book. If you are a theologian-pastor type, you may well love Andrew Purves, The Resurrection of Ministry: Serving in the Hope of the Risen Lord
. Purves’ earlier book, which we blogged through, was called The Crucifixion of Ministry: Surrendering Our Ambitions to the Service of Christ
, and this one takes us from Good Friday, coaxes us away from dwelling in a Holy Saturday ministry, and invites us into a Resurrection theology that can reshape ministry.
