Barnes's realistic vignettes describe well the demands of parish ministry; the book would provide a good basis for reflection and discussion with "inquirers" and "candidates" under care. If you dive into it, you may feel it's one part devotional journal, one part pastoral care primer, and one part homiletics textbook. The pieces are tied together with the image of pastor as "minor poet," among and for the people of a particular congregation.
