Strong convictions and articulate expression
“Del Pino came to my attention as a student in my classes at Garrett Theological Seminary. His strong convictions and articulate expression concerning the preaching ministry led me to encourage him to offer them for publication. The result is the present manuscript, which I commend to your attention.
It is blending of his thought with autobiographical insights, drawn from experience in the prize ring and also the campus ministry, lend a winsome quality to his work.”–Merrill R. Abbey, Professor Emeritus, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary

Serves as an inspiration
Aspiring to become a professional boxer as a youth, Jerome F. Del Pino received a call from God to preach in 1930. Without giving up his love of boxing, Reverend Del Pino has devoted his life to the ministry of the United Methodist Church. As pastor of many churches throughout the United States, he has had a rich ministry to the youth and to people in need.

In this book he emphasizes the importance of basing one’s ministry on an authentic call by God. He also provides the reader with insights about the nature of the call to preach and how that calling can become manifest in effective and realistic preaching.

This book can serve as an inspiration to all who read it. It is particularly recommended as a guide to the young preacher or layperson who can benefit from the insight and experience of Del Pino’s life of service as a minister to others.
