Curious what Baptists out there think should be the books (apart from The Bible) that a hopeful conservative Bible-believing, God-honoring, future Baptist pastor should read before leaving Seminary and working as a full time pastor or part-time associate pastor?

I lean toward Southern Baptist despite living in Rhode Island.  I aim to move wherever and whenever God calls my wife and I to a church seeking a full time pastor.  I confess in school I did take Church History but nothing that reviewed and studied the distinctives of the Baptist tradition.

Here is a helpful book:

Biblical Foundations for Baptist Churches, A Contemporary Ecclesiology (2005)

by John S. Hammett

Kregel Ministry

It gives a good review of different denominational distinctives and practices. It is also a good historical survey of ideas.

The Baptist Heritage: Four Centuries of Baptist Witness

A Sourcebook for Baptist Heritage

IMHO.
