The Pastor’s Primer

A Review of the Book By O.S. Hawkins

My grandfather, C. Sumner Wemp, gave me the book The Pastor’s Primer by O.S. Hawkins when I became a pastor six years ago. Since then it has sat on my shelf collecting dust until I decided to read it not too long ago. This book has been a great help to me in many ways. It is more of a devotional for a pastor than anything else and was written for that purpose. The book explains through Hawkins’ many years of experience what it means to be a pastor. He speaks about the pastor and his preaching; he speaks about the pastor and his perspective on ministry; he speaks about the pastor and his passion for souls; he speaks about the pastor and his privilege of preaching the Gospel; he speaks about the pastor and keeping his priorities in order; he speaks about the pastor and his pastoral ministry; he speaks about the pastor and his pressures in life. As you can tell, this is a book of great alliteration, but it is also a book of great help. I truly enjoyed reading The Pastor’s Primer. If there are other men who are interested in a great pastoral devotional, they will enjoy The Pastor’s Primer by O.S. Hawkins.
