God's Potters free pdf Pastoral leadership is an occupation in flux. In this important and comprehensive study, Jackson Carroll considers the many factors - the changing roles of clergy and laypeople, the opening of ordination to women, and the increasing shortage of clergy, among others - that shape the work of twenty-first-century congregations and clergy. Building on Paul's image of Christians as "clay jars," Carroll provides a portrait of "God's potters" - pastors whose calling is to form their congregational jars so that they reveal rather than hide God's treasure. Carroll uses data from Pulpit
