The New Testament writers set before us a number of models of ministry, each of which is shaped by the particular needs of the churches they were serving. Their own backgrounds, ambitions and passions also contribute to what they have to say about ministry. The contours of New Testament pastoral leadership, inspired by the Holy Spirit, exhibit a genuine diversity that finds its unity in Christ and his gospel. Derek Tidball provides a comprehensive survey of these models and patterns. By 'ministry', he has in mind primarily 'full-time' or 'professional' ministry, although his analysis is relevant to others who exercise ministry on a more occasional basis. For Tidball, the terms 'ministry' and 'leadership', or 'pastoral leadership', are interchangeable. His main focus in this volume is on pastoral leadership within local churches or groups of churches. Tidball's survey offers 'models of permission' that enable a freer approach to ministry and the way it is conducted, challenges the stunted understanding of ministry that can often characterize our churches today, and gives encouragement to those who do not fit a 'ministry by numbers' approach. Well-grounded in the relevant scholarship, Tidball's fresh engagement with the biblical texts, stimulating analysis and wise application will be of value to all who are established in pastoral leadership, or training for it.
