How did I find this book?

In order to do some blogging to assist pastors and wives, I ran a questionaire a few months ago. Nan Jones was one that answered my questionaire. I went to her blog to read some of her writings. After reading several of her posts, I decided I should read her book, since I was in the same predicament that she was writing about. It was one of the best decisions I have made.

 Who will Benefit from this Book?

“Perils …”  is written to help other pastor’s wives who are dealing with the sad situation of being dismissed by a church. This is something that is happening in alarming  numbers these days. While this book was written from the viewpoint of a woman and written for women, I think men could benefit as well. It is a wonderful book for those of us journeying the path of rejection and being in transition (without a “flock”).

My Personal Experience.

I found that God used the very some scriptures AND books to inspire Nan as He did me in my journey with  chronic pain and then our dismissal from our last church.  Hannah Hurnard’s “Hinds’ Feet in High Places” is an amazing book and Ann Voskamp’s book “One Thousand Gifts” which set me on the right path for my journey.
Her words are so gentle and encouraging. She shows us how to respond and get through it all with grace and (eventual) forgiveness.
Ministers in transition need to buy this book.
