Excellent book about the problem that many pastors face where they preach the gospel each day but find themselves unable to share with anybody else about their own sin. I'm really concerned about this problem in the church today and I believe this book would be a great help to any pastor or those were concerned about them. Highly recommended! ( )

This was a fantastic book that convicted AND gave hope. Tripp addresses many areas of potential sin for those who are in ministry. Pastoral ministry can be a lonely place where few understand the pressures that go along with the responsibility. Paul Tripp clearly and winsomely exposes those pressures that can slowly and secretly destroy a pastor's ministry. As always, he gets to the heart of those issues, skillfully showing how they all stem from a lack of gospel application.

I would highly commend this one for pastors, aspiring pastors, or those who deeply care about their pastor. It's a must-read. ( )

I was recently introduced to Paul Tripp's work, and I have not been dissapointed. He pulls no punches as he rips apart the mockery of the gospel that is much of pastoral culture in the western world. But he does so with a tender heart, and from a place of contrition, having been guilty of much of what he warns against.

He offers practical helps for working through issues in your church. But he teaches us to be a christian first, husband, father, and then a pastor. His many years working with pastors has given him a firsthand look into the devastating effects of the current status quo. With this book we can begin to change the way pastors see themselves, and the way churches see them as well. ( )
