In Part One Lathrop urges pastors tobecome lifelong students of the Lord'sPrayer, the Apostle's Creed, and theCommandments, continually inhabiting the questions,reversals and paradoxes of Christian life. In Part Two he elaborates on the pastor's chief activities presiding at the holy table, preaching, collecting for thepoor "as the center and focus for pastoral identity andspirituality."
