Following on from my post about Craig Groeschel’s 40 Leadership Tips for Young Pastors I have read his book Confessions of a Pastor. It was an enjoyable read – not at all heavy, and flowed nicely, yet dealt with some challenging issues. I read it in a few hours whilst at the hospital for various blood tests and X-rays.
What I liked most about this book was Groeschel’s honesty – it is very disarming and refreshing to read his thoughts. I think this book should be critical for all new pastors, children’s or youth workers to read. It certainly hits home the theme on not faking it, and the importance of being ourselves in front of God, our congregations and our friends and family.
