Product Description

Christian ministry is not a sprint: it's a marathon, a long-term race, requiring not just essential enthusiasm and ability, but staying power. Unfortunately, a growing number of Christian ministers don't seem to possess that staying power. 44% of all pastors who have been involved in ministry for more than fifteen years suffer from "burnout", mental break down or serious illness. And that doesn't include those who fail to continue in active ministry for other reasons, such as immorality or loss of faith.

Going the Distance is about making sure you're not one of those statistics. Drawing on decades of biblical reflection and experience, Peter Brain explains how to keep fit mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually for the long-haul.

This is a book for anyone engaged in ordained ministry, whether lay or ordained, and would be an ideal book for pastors to read with their lay readers..
