What will our scholarship and pastoral ministry be like if we are hearts without heads or heads without hearts?

A valuable insider perspective from two men who have been acclaimed for their sharp thinking and warm pastoral hearts.

This book looks at the relationship between scholarship and pastoral ministry. John Piper centres on the importance of scholarship and academic pursuits in his role as pastor. Carson, conversely, focuses on the importance of pastoral ministry in his career as a scholar.

An interesting blend of testimony, insight and teaching, this book challenges those in ministry to think carefully and holistically about their calling. An introduction by Owen Strachan and a conclusion by David Mathis provide context and application.

This book is a revised and expanded version of messages originally given following the 2009 Gospel Coalition conference.
