The Teaching Pastor

Jerry Root: “We offer crumbs! God feeds His people.” Wisdom from a Pastor-Scholar.

September 4, 2018

Call him Jerry, because if you call him Gerald it means the terrorists have won! The beauty of being admitted to Seminary on academic probation.When you meet people, do you lift them off the ground? Being a growing Pastor means you will inevitably feel awkward at times when you are learning new things. Doing exegesis on the text and exegesis on the hearts of the people. Every pastor-scholar needs three piles of books – (The books I read over and over; the books I need to read to keep up in my field; the books I want to read). Graduation is called commencement because it is the beginning of education, not the end.

In this Episode of the Teaching Pastor podcast we get a conversation on practical pastoral wisdom with Dr. Jerry Root, Professor of Evangelism at Wheaton College and C.S. Lewis scholar.
