Ferguson, Sinclair B.
These pastoral letters serve as models of compassionate leadership. Jack Miller taught that a Christian leader should be the chief servant, and that right attitudes come only from a heart changed by an encounter with God. Miller leads his reader into a deeper understanding of the gospel and a life of humility, faith, and prayer.
Miller gently challenges those called to serve as leaders to find their primary motivation in the glory of God alone.

“This is a book that will profoundly touch your life. It is wise, loving, and biblical. It reflects the heart of a man God used in such a wonderful way in so many lives, including mine. What a gift to the church!” – Steve Brown
“Jack Miller’s warm and personal letters are an extension of the man himself – a spiritual father to so many. Each letter caused me to search my heart and pointed me to Jesus. The wisdom contained in this volume is a gift to Christians everywhere.” – Susan Hunt
