 The Pastor As Minor Poet: Subtexts In The Ministerial Life

presented by PTS President, M. Craig Barnes on September 26, 2013.

“The Pastor as Minor Poet eloquently calls pastors to search for a deeper understanding of what they see - both in the text of Scripture and in the text of their parishioners’ lives. A critical part of this poetic vision involves discerning key subtexts beneath these texts, which allows pastors to preach the heart of the Word and to understand the hearts of their people.”
