Lies Pastors Believe
Seven Ways to Elevate Yourself, Subvert the Gospel, and Undermine the Church
Everyone is tempted to believe lies about themselves.
For many pastors, the lies they’re tempted to believe have to do with their identity: that God has called them to lead a movement, that they must sacrifice their home life for their ministry life, or that their image as holy is more important than their actual pursuit of holiness.
In Lies Pastors Believe, pastor and professor Dayton Hartman takes aim at these and other lies he has faced in his own ministry and seen other pastors struggle with. With a winsome and engaging style, Hartman shows current and future pastors why these lies are so tempting, the damage they can do, and how they can be resisted by believing and applying the truth of the gospel.
Dayton Hartman is lead pastor at Redeemer Church in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. He has a Ph.D. in church and dogma history from North West University (South Africa), and serves as an adjunct professor at both Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and Columbia International University. He is the author of Church History for Modern Ministry: Why Our Past Matters for Everything We Do. Learn more at daytonhartman.com.
