The Pastor with a Thorn in His Side

Product Description

Author Stephen Kneale

ISBN 9781912154319

Pages 144

Depression is increasingly common. This is no less true for those in ministry. Many suffer with depression but for various reasons feel unable to tell their churches about it. Similarly, church members often see the problem, or struggle themselves, but don’t know what to do or how to help.

This collection of real-life stories from pastors who have suffered from depression exists to encourage others in similar positions and to help church members better support their pastor when depression strikes.

Commendations

'Surprisingly enough, this is a very positive book and, I’m sure, it will help a lot of people. You won’t find within it quick fixes, magic wands or infuriating ‘Christian’ platitudes. Just personal realism and practical, biblical wisdom. But that’s precisely what you would hope from a collection of pastors’ testimonies! I hope and pray that it helps more pastors feel less isolated and more church members less confused when depression rears its ugly head.'

Mark Meynell, Director (Europe & Caribbean) for Langham Preaching and writer of When Darkness Seems My Closest Friend (IVP, 2018)

 

'This book invites you into the inner life of pastors who suffer from depression. It will be an eye-opener to many people.
