This book was recommended by a local church leader and was an interesting read, especially in comparison with Confessions of a Pastor by Craig Groeschel. This felt a bit more random, not necessarily more personal, but certainly more the unordered unedited personal thoughts of a minister. There were some things that were helpful and others that weren’t as much.
I found Gilpin’s writing style not as easy to read – they may be more to do with the difference in church and the way that so much of what he was/is trying to do is to come from Australia and set up churches across the UK. His vision is much bigger than pastoring a church, but at the same time he faces many of the struggles a pastor faces, at other times he seems to be in a completely different settings to those I work in. An interesting read, but not one I will come back to time and time again.

    1. Hi mate, as I said on the phone I reckon 14-18 year olds. I might suggest it for our 16-18 year old male youth cell to use. It is a bit American at times, e.g. talks about the R rating. But is worth a look, I’ll try and get it in the post to you tomorrow.
