What makes a reluctant but successful music-loving pastor tick? Gary Harder tells of forty-two years in that role with these deeply personal, inviting, and honest stories. Amid the chaos of people's lives, Harder finds, God is often present in unexpected ways. Harder creates a candid and lively conversation between experience and reflection; between the biblical witness and the stark reality of conflict in the church; between crisis and opportunities for ministry.
"This is narrative pastoral theology at its best. It springs from life situations, and its grounded in good biblical exegesis and clear theological reflection. Each encounter expresses the clarity, candor, humility and honesty of the servant stance that sees the good and brings out the best in others. And when things are going wrong, God appears." —David Augsburger, Fuller Theological Seminary
