Working the Angles: The shape of pastoral integrity

Working the Angles: The shape of pastoral integrity
American pastors, says Eugene Peterson, are abandoning their posts at an alarming rate. They are not leaving their churches and getting other jobs. Instead, they have become 'a company of shopkeepers, and the shops they keep are churches.' Pastors and the communities they serve have become preoccupied with image and standing, with administration, measurable success, sociological impact, and economic viability.

In Working the Angles, Peterson calls the attention of his fellow pastors to three basic actswhich he sees as the three angles of a trianglethat are so critical to the pastoral ministry that they determine the shape of everything else. The actsprayer, reading Scripture, and giving spiritual directionare acts of attention to God in three different contexts: oneself, the community of faith, and another person. Only by being attentive to these three critical acts, says Peterson, can pastors fulfill their prime responsibility of keeping the religious community attentive to God. Written out of the authors own experience as pastor of a 'single pastor church,' this well-written, provocative book will be stimulating reading for lay Christians and pastors alike.
