Then it’s time to start getting prepped now. Nothing can substitute for doing the work of ministry. But picking up and working through a handful (or two) of good books will help you more than you could ever know.
These are some of my favorites. Some I read in seminary. Others I’ve read since I’ve been working full-time in the local church.
I hope they help you as much as they’ve helped me.
