Every generation of pastors has its own minefield to tiptoe through and obstacles to overcome. Some pastors take this pretty much in stride but would welcome help in shouldering their ministerial load. At the other end of the spectrum, we find pastors who are running on empty-- out of gas, both emotionally and spiritually. But all of today's pastors would like to confide in someone who gives them realistic, practical help and guidance based on firsthand experience-- the kind found in Pastors at Greater Risk!
From Focus on the Family's H.B. London Jr. and Neil B. Wiseman, this completely rewritten and updated edition places special emphasis on today's hot-button issues: job stress, congregational turnover, pornography, spiritual burnout and more! There are a wealth of interviews with influential pastors and othr church leaders who have successfully weathered life's storms including Dr. James Dobson, Gordon and Gail MacDonald, Jerry Bridges and Archibald Hart. The result is a book that is rich in wisdom and understanding-- and one that provides pastor-to-pastor help at a time when it is needed more than ever!
Pastors at Greater Risk is an exceedingly helpful book that brings significant hope and practical solutions to the major challenges faced by so many pastors today. I highly recommend it."
"The ferocity of the spiritual battle and the intensity of the times are blurring the vision and sapping the spirit of good and godly church leaders. But there's hope and honest guidance here. Read and be strengthened, fellow-shepherd."
