In the 21st century, evangelical ministry is in crisis and a renewal is desperately needed. Part of the key to that is reflection on the way that pastoral ministry has been conceived and actually done in the past. And here Andrew Fuller in his ordination sermons can be an enormous help, for they lay out a vision of ministry that we certainly need today and is indeed applicable to our situation. Michael Haykin is well-known for his excellent historical work and the practical application of that to our own time. Brian Croft is eminently qualified to contribute, having written extensively on pastoral issues.
