One in a Thousand: The Calling and Work of a Pastor by Erroll Hulse and published by Evangelical Press.
Errol Hulse presents a clear Biblical model of what a pastor is - the qualities of the pastor are determined and a distinction made between pastor and elders. He shows, from the time of the Reformation to the present day, how that Biblical model is brought to life. This is a book that pastors and elders should read - but it also gives guidance and help to any church member, as eight biographical sketches are used; the first two from the Bible and the others from church history. A God-sent preacher is ‘one among a thousand’. Such men are sorely needed today. They are men who build up God’s Church by solid biblical preaching, by godly pastoral affection and by constant prayerfulness.
