"We will never save civilisation as long as civilisation is our main object. We must learn to want something else even more."

Thanks for the link, Ben. Dever's books are a must-read. I'm working on Carson's Cross & Christian Ministry right now, and I'm way overdue on Rutherford.Beyond these, I'd say that all pastors should read much on the gospel (Barrett, Bridges, Mahaney, Puritans, etc.). For books which more specifically address pastoral ministry, Strauch's 2 on the elder and the deacon are great, and Bill Hull's The Disciple Making Pastor has really helped shape my understanding of ministry from Eph. 4:11-12.FWIW.
Thanks Chris. And I can't believe I didn't mention another one—Bridges' The Christian Ministry. It's not on sale, but it's my personal, hands-down #1 recommendation.

Kinda funny how many of these were written in centuries other than the last two.
