When Tim Challies recommends a book I take notice. Check out his review here. Having benefited from D. A. Carson's published theological works I knew I would enjoy the new release he wrote about his father, Tom Carson. While in the U. S. this week I picked up a copy of "Memoirs of an Ordinary Pastor".
I'm only partway through the book but I haven't been disappointed. Knowing a little of the historical, religious climate in the province of Quebec I found I couldn't put the book down. Rev. Tom Carson may not be well known in conservative, evangelical circles in the United States or even here in Canada but he made an impact in the darkened province of Quebec that will not be forgotten.
He certainly was no "ordinary" pastor in the Father's eyes. He pastored his flock (His flock) with skillful hands and integrity of heart and has already heard the Master's "well done, good and faithful servant".
I'm looking forward to finishing this excellent book! Thanks for the "heads up" Tim!
