- Offers a brief guidebook for new pastors on the most frequently asked questions
Imagine what it would be like to have two highly respected pastors agree to help you tackle every tough situation that you and your church will face in the coming years. That is exactly what you have in this one-of-a-kind resource from Howard F. Sugden & Warren W. Wiersbe. Pulled from decades of pastoral experience, Sugden and Wiersbe provide answers that you won't find in seminaries—answers that both new and experienced pastors need to know to survive and thrive in ministry.

Warren Wiersbe was awarded two honorary Doctorate Degrees and has accumulated in his personal library more then ten thousand books. Some times referred to as “the pastor’s pastor”, Dr. Wiersbe has become a well known and trusted Bible theologian and scholar throughout Fundamental and Evangelical circles. He and his wife, Betty, reside in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Warren Wiersbe has written or edited over 200 books. I have them all. Why? He's so balanced and biblical. While I'm blessed to have him as a treasured friend and hero, he doesn't want to be on the phone with me everyday. But I can read his works any day that I want. His BE series should be in everyone's library. It will keep you from chasing tangents in the Scriptures. His books on preaching, ministry, and a host of other subjects will encourage you.
