Preaching, at its best, is God inspired and directed to and through a preacher. That preacher keeps feeling his need, keeps studying God's word, and stays open to the spirit. In A Preacher's Prayer, author Darel Boston shares the stories of his life-before he became a minister, during his long tenure, and the insights and lessons he gained throughout his many and varied experiences both in the United States and abroad. Beginning with his birth in 1936, Boston chronicles his journey, through his childhood and high school years, his college and seminary time, and ministries in Indianapolis, Norton and Junction City, KS. A Preacher's Prayer offers keen insight into the unique life of a minister and a minister's family. Boston's life, ministry, and poetry show an enduring relationship with God that serves to inspire and encourage others in their Christian lives.
