The book is a study of the requirements and qualifications for a church pastor.
Excerpt from the preface of the book:
Many opinions exist concerning the qualifications of a church pastor. Some believe the leadership in a church should follow the popular social dictates. Others believe the requirements for church leadership are governed by the church body. Following such beliefs, a liberal church would appoint a pastor who is liberal. Likewise, a conservative church would appoint a pastor who is conservative. However, are these popular beliefs Biblical? What are God's requirements for pastors? Fortunately, God has publicly published them in the Bible. He Gave Some to Be Pastors examines these requirements. God has provided a consistent standard for all of his pastors. Furthermore, this unchanging standard is patterned after Jesus.
