Ministers have a wonderful privilege, yet an awesome responsibility of proclaiming the gospel. God is calling men and women to be His voice to this generation, but many are being attacked from every direction. Temptation, stress, burn-out, financial strain, and other problems are causing some to trade the Bible for another career that appears to be less demanding. Reports indicate that for every ten individuals who enter the ministry at age twenty-one, only one of them will retire from the ministry. This book deals with some of the issues causing them to walk away from their calling.
Ministry can be difficult under the best of circumstances. Each day ministers are wounded and bruised because of unfair treatment by peers and parishioners alike. Ministry can be a lonely life and the demands can be overwhelming. How does a minister continue when it seems like the promises of God have failed? How can he stay clean in a dirty world? How should the minister respond to injustice and unfair treatment? In order to complete the calling victoriously, ministers must keep their eyes on the One who called them. Each minister has been uniquely gifted and called to fulfill God's mandate to the world.
