About-

Practicing Ministry in the Presence of God presents a new paradigm for church ministry--one that is based on fundamental truths of the Christian faith such as the Trinity, union with Christ, and the "already" presence of the Holy Spirit in the church. This new paradigm can help busy pastors avoid "burnout" in the ministry and model Trinitarian, New Testament patterns of ministry to their people. Practicing Ministry in the Presence of God reflects the best of recent New Testament scholarship, sensitivity to the contexts of globalized postmodern cultures dominated by digital media, and practical applications for Christian life, discipleship, worship, and mission.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Davis is one of the most important and influential theologians in today's evangelical world . . . This book is an excellent example of his profound insights into the practice of ministry and provides us with inspirational correctives to the prevalent ways of doing ministry. Practicing Ministry in the Presence of God is filled with invigorating lessons for integrative ministry . . . This is a must-read for every Christian minister."
--Sung Wook Chung, Professor of Christian Theology, Denver Seminary

"Davis has set the table with a rich feast of theological expertise combined with genuine application to ministry. This set of essays will challenge, delight, and convict the reader. Settle in to a great theological meal here."
