Pastors Cry is a much-needed book and should be a part of everyone’s library, whether they are in the ministry or a layperson. Dr. Forrest has pulled open the curtain to reveal a side of the ministry that the public never sees. She touches on one of the greatest challenges of leadership—how to provide the security those under you need even when you are facing internal struggles due to the weight of leadership. This book not only provides hope for pastors by showing there is someone who understands the unmentioned struggles they face, it is also a wonderful resource for the layperson by showing how many times your pastor is carrying a hidden burden he or she is unable to reveal. Armed with this knowledge, church members can be a blessing to their pastor by letting them know they have the support of their congregation during difficult times.
