Overview

Does your spirit need lifting? Do you sometimes feel distant from the Father's love? By picking up this book, you've made a step in the right direction.
What we discover in the midst of life's choices, says pastor and author Douglas Connelly, is that God promises to give us wisdom, not answers. "We want God to tell us what is best or which choice will bring happiness and security," he writes in this heartfelt little book. "We want 'voice-from-heaven' direction; God offers quiet, unspectacular, one-step-at-a-time wisdom."
At once sensitive and challenging, Wisdom from a Pastor's Heart collects the most comforting and inspiring thoughts of hundreds of Bible-centered pastors who have contributed to The Minister's Manual. For more than seventy-five years, The Minister's Manual has provided insight and inspiration to pastors as they led their flocks. Now that wisdom has been sifted and selected to speak to the hearts of Christians in the twenty-first century, meeting them where they are-every step of the way.
Grouped into categories that reflect faith, community, and personal challenges, the readings cover all aspects of everyday life, from temptation to disappointment, from failure to forgiveness, from parenting to peace. The words of these wise men and women, help us to keep our footing on the solid rock of God's unchanging love and his unfailing promises.
