"This heartwarming (and at times heart-wrenching) story of the downs and ups of ministry and church life offers the kind of practical and godly wisdom that will help pastors (and those they shepherd) towards a realistic appreciation of what really matters as we serve Christ and his people."

John Woodhouse, Retired Principal and Lecturer in Doctrine and Old Testament, Moore College, Sydney, Australia

"Convicting, compelling and ultimately uplifting; this insightful probing of the realities of pastoral ministry will make you smile, lead you to pray, and encourage you to persevere."

Colin S. Smith, Senior Pastor, The Orchard, Arlington Heights, Illinois and President, Unlocking the Bible

"I plan to commend this book to our students here at Beeson Divinity School and to pastors everywhere who are called to the burdensome joy of shepherding the flock of God."

Timothy George, Founding Dean of Beeson Divinity School, Samford University, Birmingham, Alabama

"In this earthy and attractive page-turner of a book, we are exposed to the whole fascinating range of church Life and Christian ministry, joys, scandals and all'

Richard Bewes, OBE (1939 – 2019), formerly of All Souls Church, Langham Place, London, England

"This is a book that ought to be read not only by everyone in, or preparing for, pastoral ministry; but also by every church member who wants an insight into the ups and downs of their pastor's life. It highlights central principles of ministry, is full of good advice for a multiplicity of difficult pastoral situations, warns of temptations and snares as well as sharing with us the happier occasions of ministry, and all in the highly readable style of a series of email exchanges. Read it and discover why 'Everyone needs an Eldon."

Hector Morrison, Principal, Highland Theological College, Dingwall

"I could scarcely put this book down as I relived the pitfalls and missteps of the early days of pastoral ministry, but then the glories of wisdom, perseverance, and hope that gradually emerges. No matter what your pastoral setting, this book will help you get - or stay - on the paths of righteousness."

Greg Scharf, Chair of the Pastoral Theology Department and Professor of Pastoral Theology, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, Illinois
