A Field Guide for a Dangerous Call

Are you walking into danger? Ministry is a dangerous call. Thankfully, God has provided guides to decision-making in ministry. 
DangerousCallIn his latest book, A Field Guide for a Dangerous Call, Southwestern Seminary President Paige Patterson warns of potential pitfalls and points those in ministry to five guides—the law, wisdom, holiness, the Corinthian principles, and the Holy Spirit—to help them navigate life and ministry.

These chapters are adaptations of the warm affirmations that Patterson gave to the students of Southwestern Seminary in his spring 2014 chapel series.

“If you’re looking for an easy life and you want safety, a reprieve from all of the pressures that you’ll be under, then you need to decide now, today, to leave the ministry and get out of it. It’s not a safe place. If you are going to be in the ministry, you are going to walk into serious danger,” Patterson says.
