Paul Beasley-Murray, one of the most respected Christian ministers of the last fifty years, offers fifty succinct reflections on all aspects of ministry, including pastoring, preaching, evangelism, prayer, growth, worship, family, personal care and relationships.This is essential, foundational reading for clergy of all denominations and of all levels of experience.


"So encouraging and helpful. We need each other's wisdom to expand the scope and vision of Christian ministry. These fifty lessons from fifty years of ministry are a very good place to start." —Stephen Cottrell "The fruit of a life-time of ministry, this is vintage Beasley-Murray — accessible, passionate, full of wisdom about Christian ministry, and just occasionally, controversial." —Revd Dr Paul Goodliff
