Kruger on Scholars and Pastors

I recently came across a thoughtful piece on Michael J. Kruger's blog entitled "Should You be a Pastor or a Professor? Thinking Through the Options." I thought it was a very helpful piece which not only differentiated well between the ministry of the scholar and pastor but also provided some helpful grist for the mill for those who are thinking through these ministry options. For those who might be interested, I have always considered myself a scholar-pastor who is active in the church by conviction and personal bent, and my pastor is a pastor-scholar who is active in scholarship for the same reasons (as far as I know).
