"Dr. O. S. Hawkins combines the heart of a pastor and the skill of a great leader. In this powerful new book he provides pastors with a wealth of both spiritual and practical advice. He has distilled a lifetime of pastoral experience and reflection into one unprecedented volume. Every pastor needs this book, and should keep it within a short reach."
R. Albert Mohler, Jr., President

"Few men have moved from pastorate into denominational service and yet maintained pastoral connections and perspectives as has O.S. Hawkins. This book, The Pastor’s Guide to Leading and Living, is proof enough of this affirmation. Exceptional chapters include those discussing the pastor and his preaching, his partner, his priorities, his pressures, the poor, and the prize. Although most pastors’ manuals, however valuable, are not the most interesting reading, this volume is scintillating and constructive to a degree that I have seldom seen."
