Continuing to review the books I have read in the last few weeks next on the list is Peter Brain's Going the Distance. This book was fantastic - it is certainly one having read it through fully, that I can see myself going back to time and time again. The topics include:
- Burnout - friend or foe?
- Depression doesn't have to be depressing
- Anger: using it constructively
- The pastor's family
- Principles and strategies of self-care
It contains a lot of down-to-earth practical wisdom for church leader, but also their congregations to develop longer and lasting relationships. I thoroughly recommend this book.
