Publisher's Summary

After traveling the world for many years and speaking at hundreds of churches of all kinds, Paul David Tripp is concerned about the state of pastoral culture. He is not only concerned about the spiritual life of the pastor, but with the very people who train him, call him, relate to him, and restore him if necessary.

Dangerous Calling reveals the truth that the culture surrounding our pastors is spiritually unhealthy - an environment that actively undermines the wellbeing and efficacy of our church leaders and thus the entire church body. Here is a book that both diagnoses and offers cures for issues that impact every member and church leader, and gives solid strategies for fighting the war that rages not only in the momentous moments of ministry, but also in the mundane day-by-day life of every pastor.

    "Heart Surgery"
    Where does Dangerous Calling rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    With regard to content, this book is in my top 5 favorite audiobooks.


    What other book might you compare Dangerous Calling to and why?

    Richard Baxter's "The Reformed Pastor". The reason why is that Baxter and Tripp both do you a great service in helping you do a thorough (and painful) self-examination.


    What does Maurice England bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think Maurice does a wonderful job reading the content. As I was listening, I found myself forgetting that I was being read to - a quality I appreciate. Get out of the way of the content. Great job, Maurice.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not in particular, but in the whole, I was greatly refreshed and warned.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must-read/listen for anyone serving in ministry in any capacity. I hope to pass this book on to my sons when the time comes.

    "Dangerous Calling - Excellent"

    I was totally sucked in. Listened to most of it driving from PA to NY. It was practical and yet I found myself moved to worship.

    "For all Christians"

    A great book for Pastors and Christians everywhere. Learn how you can help protect and love those in your church. We are all sinners saved by grace and it's the body of the church that can protect each other from the world and all the evil in it. (Love Paul Tripp)

    "A must read"

    Very convicting, humbling and insightful. He pulls back the veneer of pastoral ministry. Reading this book was like heart surgery every sitting. It is a must read for anyone involved in gospel ministry.

    "A beneficial gut-punch."

    Tripp brings a message that cut straight to my gut and I heartily recommend it to any minister, paid or voluntary. He addresses the things that can creep into out labors and leadership that will short-change us in the immediate- and long-term.

    Story
    "Wish it was less repetitive and monotonous."

    This is the only book I have read by this author but if his other books say the same sentences eight to ten times in slightly different ways, ask rhetorical questions ad nauseum, and have chapter after chapter mirror each other with almost imperceptible differences as this one does, Wow. Probably better in written form than audible so that a reader could skim in about 30 minutes and get the gist of it.

    "Wow. Every Minister needs to read this book."

    Yes you too!!!! Great great book that discusses the need for being real in ministry and developing more than a performance based mentality and Christianity. I wish I could afford to buy a copy of this book for every friend I have in ministry and those looking to one day be there.
