Thousands of people leave Christian ministry every month. They have not lost their love for Christ, or their desire to serve him. But for one reason or another, they are exhausted and simply cannot carry on.

Christopher Ash knows this experience all too well. As a pastor of a growing church, and then in his role training people for ministry, he has found himself on the edge of burnout a number of times, and has pastored many younger ministers who have reached the end of their tether.

His wisdom has been distilled into this short, accessible book, in which he reveals a neglected biblical truth and seven keys that flow from it. Understood properly, and built into our lives as Christians who are zealous to serve the Lord, they will serve to protect us from burnout, and keep us working for God's kingdom and glory.

The Bible says, "Rejoice, again I say rejoice!" So why are Christians perceived as joyless and judgmental? Challenging the notion that God wants us to be holy and not happy, Alcorn draws on Scripture to dispel centuries of misconceptions and provide evidence that God not only wants us to experience contentment, delight, and peace---he commands it! 484 pages, hardcover from Tyndale.
