Pastor TheologianHiestand and Wilson write on Calvin as an ecclesial theologian, “[Calvin] changed the world because he wrote as a robust, theologically informed, intelligent, prophetic pastor who understood — as a matter of vocation — what is was to have the weight of souls upon his shoulders.”  – The Pastor Theologian, 86. May the Lord raise up scores upon scores of self-conscious, intentional, ecclesial theologians (and academic theologians) with this same theological burden, for the sake of His church in this generation and the generations to come.


Join Hiestand and Wilson, Kevin Vanhoozer, Peter Leithart, James K. A. Smith, me, and many others at this year’s Center for Pastor Theologians’ Conference: The Pastor as Theologian: Identities and Possibilities.
