Description

Pastor, the hard work of church revitalization is a unique experience and battle ground. It can feel like you’re all alone. But the trials you face are not new. Faithful preachers throughout scriptures and church history have encountered hostility, apathy, and adversity, and continue to do so today. Brian Croft and James Carroll share their personal stories and seek to encourage you to faithfully persevere in this Spirit–empowered, God–honoring, Christ–exalting work.

Endorsements

There is sufficient simple biblical realism in this volume to make it widely applicable. Both authors have faced particular battles in different difficult contexts, and both seek to filter that experience through the grid of Scripture, to give counsels and encouragements for those seeking to revitalise troubled or stubborn churches in accordance with the Word of God. Even more settled pastors in more solid churches will find much to stimulate and to instruct in this helpful and accessible volume.

Jeremy Walker, Pastor, Maidenbower Baptist Church, UK

Despair, fatigue, and frustration are grave threats to pastoral ministry. How does one not only endure but improve as a preacher when there is little affirmation and few signs of growth? Here is a book that gives advice and inspiration for preachers who need encouragement to stay true to their calling to preach the Word (2 Tim. 4:1). 

Joe Barnard, Pastor, Holyrood Evangelical Church, Edinburgh Author of The Way Forward, and Surviving the Trenches
