Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Pastor Douglas Connelly says that God promised to give us wisdom to solve the questions of life, not the answers themselves. This "heartfelt little book" is designed to bring the reader closer to God's love through the inspirational thoughts of hundreds of pastors who have contributed to The Minister's Manual over the past 75 years. The passages are helpfully arranged into categories, including Temptation, Disappointment, Failure and Guilt, and Discouragement.
Publishers Weekly
Busy Christians everywhere will appreciate Wisdom from a Pastor's Heart, Douglas Connelly's compilation of clergy members' thoughts on topics such as family, baptism, money, grace, suffering, fear, failure and temptation. For the quotes, Connelly combed through 75 years of The Minister's Manual, a sourcebook of reflections by clergy and for clergy. The result is what he calls "a pastor in your pocket," a useful little book that offers spiritual wisdom in bite-sized morsels. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
