Overview

After years of trying to be the perfect son, husband, father, and perfect pastor...Mark Elliott slays his dragons of perfectionism, isolation, and superficiality. As mistakes and disappointment happen along his life's journey, Dr. Elliott, a newly transparent, middle-aged pastor confronts his demons of image-conscious paralysis, legalistic upbringing, and unfair judgments by others.

In Confessions of an Insignificant Pastor: What Every Pastor Wishes They Could Tell You, Pastor Elliott bares his soul as he takes a brutally honest look at the person we are on the inside that few people ever know. Why would he take such a risk? The reward of helping others find the keys to unlock their prison door is greater than the personal risk. Each chapter hits the nail on the head in relating to the issues inside us and drawing out the hidden person in us all.

Dr. Elliott tackles such issues as emotional baggage, people getting on his last nerve, disillusionment, arrogance, messy motives, workaholism and his own battle with sin. When is the last time you heard a pastor confess his debilitating flaws? This book is written from the blood, sweat, and tears that come out of Mark's personal journey. The transparency is refreshing, the honesty is startling, and the positive hope is life-changing.
