WTS $5 Book Special - 48 Hours Only

Westminster is having a 48 Hour special on a new book by Jeremy Walker and Rob Ventura titled A Portait of Paul: Identifying a True Minister of Christ. The book normally sells at $18, so the temporary $5 price amounts to a 70% discount.
What does a true pastor look like, and what constitutes a faithful ministry? How can we identify the life and labors of one called by God to serve in the church of Jesus Christ? To address these questions, Rob Ventura and Jeremy Walker examine how the apostle Paul describes his pastoral relation to the people of God in Colossians 1:24–2:5. By discussing these essential attitudes, qualities, and characteristics of a faithful minister of Christ, A Portrait of Paul provides gospel ministers an example of what they should be, and demonstrates for churches the kind of pastors they will seek if they desire men after God’s own heart.
Among the very appealing endorsements from men such as Joel Beeke and Derek Thomas, Ben Dahlvang's seems the most pointed:
"If you are burned out in your ministry or have lost the vision of what it means to care for Christ's sheep, read this book. If you are a member of a church and find it easy to criticize your pastor, read this book. If you think you are called to the gospel ministry, and especially if you think you know what that call entails, read this book twice."
In other words, this book is for all of us. I am currently reading the sample chapter from Westminster, and I think there is a lot to benefit from in this book.
