18,000 pastors are leaving the ministry each year. That is 1,500 every single month. What is behind this exodus from the ministry? Why are so many pastors burned out, emotionally fatigued, physically exhausted, and spiritually discouraged? "Smitten Shepherds" is a book that is dedicated to pastors. It is to the point, straight from the heart and forged from our 30 plus years of pastoring. It is a book written, not to discourage, but to encourage. Pastors and their wives who have read this book are calling and writing to say they have been given extra strength for their race after reading "Smitten Shepherds". One evangelist ordered 100 to encourage pastors. Pastoring today is harder than it was yesterday. It will be harder tomorrow than it is today. Will you be one of the 18,000 who walk away from the church, or will you be one who continues to fight the fight, keep the faith and finish your course? These 122 pages may make the difference.
"From page one, I was gripped, and could not put it down. I believe every minister and every minister's wife should read it, because, although following God's call is immensely rewarding, there are definite pitfalls we must avoid. Finally, we have a book that biblically and effectively addresses the very real challenges we face in the ministry. As a minister, we go through great challenges to our faith, family, and ministry. But, praise God, we can and will make it by the grace of God - just know that this book is a provision of His grace." Mike Croslow, Executive Director of Harvest Churches International
"This book is full of truth and it is strength for those not to give up their position in Christ as they serve the Lord in ministry and leadership. I am passing it on to the pastors on the campus." Catherine Logan, President of Mount Zion School of Ministry
