A WORKMAN THAT NEEDETH NOT TO BE ASHAMED

These chapters comprise the Freitas Lectures given by the author at Asbury Theological Seminary, Wilmore, Kentucky, during the fall of 1956. Building upon the exhortation of the Apostle Paul to Timothy, his "son" in the Christian ministry—"Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed" (II Timothy 2:15)—the author speaks out of his own experience as a pastor to those who are ministers or who are preparing themselves for the Christian ministry.

It is the author's conviction that in an age when society, in general, with its galaxy of problems and its multiplicity of needs demands skillful leaders and skilled workers, even more does the Christian Society require at its head and at its heart "workmen that need not to be ashamed." An irreverent, self-seeking society has caused the church to answer for enough indictments; let not the church itself add to this list by failing to provide for itself capable and consecrated "workmen." The contemporary age demands the church at its best. If the church is to be at its best, then those who lead and serve it must be "workmen who need not to be ashamed."

The aim of the book is utterly pragmatic. The author endeavors to point out some of the practical methods by which a minister may be "a workman that needeth not to be ashamed." After an opening chapter on "The Distinctiveness of the Minister's Task," the author proceeds to discuss such practical matters as the minister's care of the church, the continuing preparations of the minister, the minister's spiritual leadership of his people, the minister and Healing, and the minister in his relationship to the world.
