There are so many reasons why a pastor or ministry leader
should write a book.
Publishing a book presents a unique opportunity for ministry leaders and lay people in the church.
Christianity depends heavily on education and training.
There is a constant stream of teaching in the church and among its members that is often times verbal.
Verbal education is great but writing a book is forever.
It is a perpetual message to the growing believer, which can be referred back to when needed.
When you are counseling or training someone it is great to have a book that reinforces your message and helps them remember and really apply what you have taught.
Every pastor can benefit from a book because when new people come into his/her church or they go out to speak to audiences abroad, they want to have their presence and message firmly planted in the minds and hearts of people. This is accomplished through a book.
A pastor’s first book can be based on the vision that moves him the most throughout the duration of his ministry and still incorporate other key features.
A couple of great features are a plan of salvation and a devotional section at the end of each chapter. The greatest influence on every Christian’s life throughout time has been the words of God and His chosen authors. What God chose to use to preserve His Word was a book!
