David Murray writes in the Foreword: ’The minister’s soul is the soul of his ministry.’ I can’t remember where I ?rst heard this saying, but I’ve never been able to forget it. And, having read this book, I never want to forget it. In these pages, Jim Savastio and Brian Croft establish the foundation of all faithful and fruitful ministry—the pastor’s soul. But, although their main target is the epidemic of ministerial hyper-activity and the accompanying burnout, backsliding, and brokenness, they carefully avoid over-reacting and running to the opposite extremes of monkish withdrawal or lazy self-indulgence. Instead, you have a book that skillfully walks a balanced biblical path in both content and style. It balances self and others. Yes, the pastor is all about serving others, about sacri?cing for the sake of others, about spending and being spent for others, and about pouring out themselves to ?ll others. But, as many pastors have discovered to their cost and pain, servants are ?nite, sacri?ces eventually turn to ashes, non-stop spending leads to bankruptcy, and pouring out without ever ?lling up ends in drought. This book reminds us that caring for self is not sel?sh but necessary if we are to sustain a life of caring service to others. It’s not a warrant for sloth or sel?shness, but rather a call to self-care that will lead to better other-care.
