"As a minister with twenty-four years of pastoral experience, I wish I'd had this book at the outset of my ministry. As a seminary professor, I wish all my students had this book at the outset of their ministries." - Dr. Don Whitney, Associate Professor of Spiritual Formation, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Kansas City, MO
"Written with the conscientious evangelical pastor in mind, this is an excellent resource for new ministers. here are helpful letters concerning the multiple tasks demanded of the pasotr, whether in the home, in the study, or behind the pulpit. Each letter has been written by an experienced pastor with a hot ehart and a keen mind, and each letter ends with a list of suggested resources on that particular subject. I only wish such wise counsel had been available in written form during my tumultuous first pastorate!" - Dr. Malcolm B. Tarnell, III Assistant Dean for Theological Studies, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, TX
