Publisher's Description

Dad may be following God’s call, but the Pastor’s kids (PKs) are just following mom and dad. Often to devastating results.
Barnabas Piper – son of Pastor and bestselling author John Piper – has experienced the challenges of being a PK first-hand. With empathy, humor, and personal stories, he addresses the pervasive assumptions, identity issues and accelerated scrutiny PKs face.
But more than just stating the problems – he shares the one thing a PK needs above all else (as do their pastor/father and church) is to live in true freedom and wholeness.

Author Bio

    Understanding Better Why PKs Flee From Church and God

    Barnabas Piper's audiobook was very helpful in explaining what happens and is going on with our PKs while they are growing up in the church and parsonage. As a former pastor's wife of 25 years service and mother of two PKs, I related to everything shared which caused negative and angry flashbacks of the past. Disturbingly, many of the stories and examples shared were identical situations my own children experienced as there were definitely certain rigid and unreal conditions and expectations while church lay people lived double standards themselves. We became anything but a normal household and tragically our house became divided and fell apart and both of my children are now out of the arch of safety. We bear countless hidden scars from various church congregations where we served who along with Satan contributed in helping destroy our family. However, I have a strong faith God is able to change and heal us all to the very fiber of our beings if we acknowledge Him and seek His counsel. I not only purchased this audiobook for myself, but also sent one to each of my children this past Christmas praying it will help bring about healing, redemption and hope for their future. I strongly recommend this audiobook to every pastoral family out there, whether strong and normal or on the verge of being dysfunctional if you have not already reached that point. By having prior knowledge of the different things that can disrupt and destroy your parsonage family, you can utilize these helpful tools to help ensure a safer life for PKs. Every pastoral family needs to all sit down and listen to this together and discuss everything they hear and identify with. Also, I highly recommend deacons, deaconesses, church boards, bishops, and district superintendents refresh themselves and become even more aware of the existing dangers which are currently happening in numerous pastoral and even missionary families. Please do not by-pass this valuable resource. Even invest in one to place in your church library if you have one.

    The Pastor's Kid by Barnabas Piper Audiobook
    July 1, 2014
    The Pastor's Kid: Finding Your Own Faith and Identity by Barnabas Piper, son of Pastor John Piper, is a book I wish was written a long time ago. Unlike many PKs (Pastor's Kids), I did not grow up as a PK, but became one when I was around twelve. The transition from being an "average" churchgoer to a PK was an interesting transition. There were many times I was full of joy, but I have also experienced the pain and frustrations of being a PK.

    As I read Barnabas's book, I kept telling myself that I wish I had this when I first became a PK. Barnabas discusses a number of issues PKs struggle with and situations they have to face. While each PK is different, I think most PKs will relate to a good bit of this book.

    I appreciated Barnabas's honesty. I felt like he was giving a voice to PKs, who don't always get to have a voice. While I may not agree fully with everything in this book, I found it to be extremely powerful. There were times I was able to relate to situations Barnabas was talking about and it made me feel good knowing that I am not the only one who has gone through something. I also enjoyed how Barnabas integrated other PKs into the book by quoting something from them. This took the book to another level for me.

    I think many people in the church do not know what PKs and their families go through and I think this book sheds light on that. I highly recommend this book as it challenged me in my views and helped me view my role as a PK differently. I also think this would be a good read for a number of individuals in a congregation-to help them get a better understanding of the pressures PKs have placed on them and how they may be contributing to the unneeded stress and frustrations.

    Barnabas also had a chapter for the parents of a PK. I found this to be very beneficial as well. I think there are times when pastors and their wives can get caught up in church without thinking of the effect it can have on the rest of the family. I think Barnabas did a nice job handling this as well.

    I reviewed the audiobook version of this book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I really liked that it was read by Barnabas because I really enjoy books that are read by the author. I actually ordered a print copy of this book after listening to the audiobook because I found the book to be that helpful.

    I received a copy of this audiobook from the christianaudio Reviewers Program in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions are my own.
