Grace is the credential that lets us park close to people's hearts.When Christ calls a pastor He instills a kind of heightened instinct for grace; what we call a shepherd's heart. However, pastors often become disoriented by leadership demands, congregational expectation, and the wounds of ministry. They forget how to use the grace of Christ in the everyday work of pastoring.
Through striking word pictures and stories that resonate with every pastor, this book will reinvigorate pastors' instincts for practicing grace in the churches they shepherd. Whether you are training to be a pastor and wondering if you are called, a seasoned shepherd needing encouragement and affirmation, or simply someone who wants to encourage your pastor, you will appreciate the sage wisdom and confirmation poured out in the pages of Pastoral Graces.

Pastoral Graces is for weary pastors needing a ^comforting arm around their shoulder. It's for future shepherds wanting to learn ^lessons not found in their seminary curriculum. And it's for church leaders or lay ^people wanting to lighten the weight on their pastors' shoulders. These true tales ^and insights from Pastor Lee Eclov's own ministry reveal that there is nothing more ^necessary to the work of a shepherd than the grace of God.


 


"We ^feel a kind of relentless pressure to be better strategic and visionary leaders, ^more compelling communicators, more astute theologians, and better culture-shaping ^evangelists. But all of these other assignments get in line behind Peter's instruction ^to us: 'Be shepherds of God's flock that is under your care.' " -Lee ^Eclov


 


"Oh, my, a book on the pastorate that is about, well, ^pastoring, shepherding! It's a rare breed in our ambitious and managerial ^age. But it's a biblical breed who know that the minister is, from first to last, ^a minister of God's grace. I have said this about few books in my long life, but ^it clearly applies to this one: required reading for every pastor, a book destined ^to become a classic."  Mark Galli, senior managing editor, Christianity ^Today


 


"A poignant and engaging book which composes a beautiful ^vision of pastoral ministry. If we are to survive the long marathon of pastoral ^ministry, we need the careful wisdom of books like Pastoral Graces: a cool ^and refreshing cup of grace for thirsty pastors." Chris Brauns, pastor of The ^Red Brick Church, Stillman Valley, Illinois
