-Publisher

The American church is struggling. Too many pastors no longer practice what they preach, and congregations don't just hear, they watch. "Nobody's Perfect, But You Have to Be details how pastors preach with their lives as well as their lips. By delving into tough issues pastors face, the author teaches church leaders how a life of example aides their sermons with a transforming power for persuasion that can change hearts. In this life perfection is impossible, yet preachers are commanded by God to he righteous. Can this be attained while one is still human, mature in faith yet at the same time still maturing? Shriver says yes, outlining seven character traits marking lives of integrity and describing how pastoral integrity grows through practice of spiritual disciplines.

Feel like everybody's watching you? They are! Your congregation is looking to see if you preach with your life---not just your words. Tackling tough issues pastors face, Shriver outlines seven characteristics of ministerial integrity. You'll learn how "holy honesty" grows through practicing spiritual disciplines and that your own Christian walk is the best sermon illustration.
