Thousands of people leave Christian ministry every month. They have not lost their love for Christ, or their desire to serve him. But for one reason or another, they are exhausted and simply cannot carry on.
Christopher Ash knows this experience all too well. As a pastor of a growing church, and then in his role training people for ministry, he has found himself on the edge of burnout a number of times, and has pastored many younger ministers who have reached the end of their tether.
His wisdom has been distilled into this short, accessible book, in which he reveals a neglected biblical truth and seven keys that flow from it. Understood properly, and built into our lives as Christians who are zealous to serve the Lord, they will serve to protect us from burnout, and keep us working for God's kingdom and glory.
- Vital reading for those in ministry
Excellent book by Christopher Ash. As someone who has experienced these issues, I have had to come to terms with these things and he gently and pastorally deals with them. We are but dust, and need to heed these warnings to save needless burnout and exhaustion.
- Loved it!
As a Pastor of over 32 years, I wish I had read this book while I Was still in Bible College. Insightful, helpful, and a book I will recommend to all my Pastor friends.
