It is very clear that the practical and helpful advice in this book comes from someone who has lived in and survived the chaos of ministry. Shepp's insights are a must-read for any person who has ever felt they are stretched too thin or do not have time for a life beyond their ministry! The prayers that end each section of the book, alone, can help bring hope and healing to any stressed-out minister.
