On the Brink

Grace for the Burned-Out Pastor

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Pastors and church leaders, are you physically exhausted and mentally and spiritually spent? Are you ready to throw in the towel and sit on the sidelines?

As we learn from Jesus’ crucifixion, any decision to deeply and sacrificially love sinners is going to hurt—really hurt. And our own sin makes things even messier. When the pain and frustration and exhaustion of ministry build up in our hearts, it’s easy to lose sight of the incredible gifts given to us in Jesus Christ: hope and resurrection power that strengthen us to carry on. Join a fellow pastor in rediscovering the gospel’s soul-sustaining and heart-renewing comfort for leaders in church ministry. 

“Realistic, gospel-grounded, grace-saturated encouragement for embattled and weary pastors. . . . The antidote to the temptation to drop out of the shepherd’s costly calling is not renewal of our own teeth-gritted resolution, but a fuller view of the panorama of Jesus and his costly love for us.”
—Dennis E. Johnson, Ph.D., Professor of Practical Theology, Westminster Seminary California

"I commend this wonderful book to the many wounded warriors in Gospel ministry I meet every day—clergy and laity."
—Michael A. Milton, Ph.D., Fourth President & Chancellor, Reformed Theological Seminary

“A powerful reality check for those just entering the ministry as well as a valuable source of encouragement to those who are struggling in the trenches after many years of service.”
—Iain M. Duguid, Professor of Old Testament, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia

Clay Werner (M.Div., Westminster Seminary in California) is senior pastor at Lexington Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Lexington, South Carolina, where he lives with his wife, Liz, and their five children.
