This short eBooklet (11 pages long) by the president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Dr. Albert Mohler, is an excellent argument for and reminder of the idea that the pastor’s calling is inherently theological. The question regarding a pastor’s preaching and his use of theology isn’t “Are you preaching theologically?” Rather the question is “Are you preaching well or poor theologically?”

Every pastor is called to be a theologian. This may come as a surprise to some pastors, who see theology as an academic discipline taken during seminary rather than as an ongoing and central part of the pastoral calling. Nevertheless, the health of the church depends upon its pastors functioning as faithful theologians — teaching, preaching, defending and applying the great doctrines of the faith.
