Judson Press' all time best-seller, this classic is organized into six chapters that give an overview of the pastor's work and provide suggestions for all aspects of ministry. Scripture selections, outlines for weddings and funerals, parliamentary considerations for churches, and forms for commonly needed letters and certificates are just some of the helpful features offered in this book.
About the Author
Dr. Edward Thurston Hiscox (1814-1901) was a distinguished Baptist theologian and the author of the Standard Manual for Baptist Churches (published 1890) and the New Directory for Baptist Churches (1894) - both of which were considered two of the foundational works of the modern Baptist church.
This is THE book to own of its type. Highly recommended to new and old ministers alike. It should be in every ministers library. I always refer back to mine.
I have personally used and highly recommend The Star Book for Ministers. Filled with useful forms, ceremonial procedures, guidelines for different types of services, parliamentary guides for churches, and even ecclesiastical sample letters and blanks, I have found it a priceless resource. I highly recommend this book for all ministers, and especially for the newly ordained clergy or anyone starting a church.
