Talking with Catholics About the Gospel
In Talking with Catholics about the Gospel, author Chris Castaldo provides an easy-to-follow introduction to basic Catholic belief and practice, equipping Evangelicals for more fruitful spiritual conversations. This short, accessible book offers readers: a more informed awareness of Catholicism; encouragement to move from a combative posture to a gracious one; and clarification of erroneous caricatures of Catholics in favor of a more constructive understanding. Based in part on Castaldo's experience as a Catholic and time spent working professionally in the Catholic Church, his guide gives readers a framework for recognizing where lines of similarity and difference fall between Catholics and evangelical Protestants, along with tips for engaging in spiritual discussions. This book is ideal for anyone interested in gaining practical insights for gracious and worthwhile discussions of faith with Catholics, particularly those in vocational ministry.

The Pastor's Ministry
Every pastor struggles with demands for his time, and how to determine priorities in ministry. Where should a busy pastor look for wisdom in making decisions? The Pastor's Ministry is your guide to prioritizing your ministry from a biblical perspective. Pastor and author Brian Croft looks to the Scriptures for the top ten priorities to help pastors determine how to spend their time and with greater discernment respond to the demands of the church. Each of these priorities is rooted in a direct command of God’s Word, and include such priorities as: Guarding the Truth; Praying for the Flock; Setting an Example; Caring for Widows; Confronting Sin; and Identifying and Training Other Leaders. To be successful and faithful in pastoral ministry, every pastor needs to understand certain core callings and make them part of their regular practice. This book will guide how a pastor schedules his time, helping them lay the foundation for a biblically faithful ministry.
