Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Must Read for Every Church Member  Dec 17, 2009
This is a must read for every church member. It shows Pastors for who they are and what they are facing. It will open your eyes to how you can support your pastor, provide for him and his family and how to make sure he stays on the job.
 
Can This Really Happen  May 1, 2009
This was a quick read. I was interested in knowing what do preachers want church members to know. This might seem odd since I am a minister, but I was curious. The book is mostly a compilation of various quotes from ministers in America. The author performed a huge survey of ministers in various denominations. The book does picture a true outlook of some of the concerns of preachers in churches, though the book does picture the average preacher as a bit whinny. The book makes some afford to avoid this image, but nevertheless it is present. This is because often the minister is not allowed to complain. It is usually interpreted as a sign of weakness. The book touches on family life, money issues, anxiety, difficult members, and the fear of being fired. The book would be eye opening to members in a congregation, but mostly the book could be read or summarized for the majority of people in a few pages. You do not have to read every quote to get the point. Personally, in my ministry, I have stopped trying to explain to members some of the issues that I face. There is usually little understanding of the issues. This is why a strong preacher friend network is important. I do not understand what a accountant does, so why would he understand what I do.
 
Things church members should know  Feb 28, 2009
Marvelous illustrations here. And obviously words straight from the
preachers' mouths on how life is affecting them in their peculiar
situations. I learned a lot in a short while.

One thing was indelibly impressed on me: that we are so far removed from
their personal lives, we know little (and probably for that reason,
sometimes express seeming disinterest). Theirs is a fishbowl existence while at the same time they face many of the challenges those of us in the pews are facing. We forget that they are human with material, emotional and other needs like ours, too.

This book puts it in perspective. It's a good reminder that we need to reacquaint ourselves with the personal sides of our pastors -- to see their hurts, their dreams, their responsibilities, their pressures -- from a realistic standpoint.

Denise George has done thorough research and those who read her book, I predict, will be blessed. And so surely will their pastors.

--Jim Cox
