    This is the first book I read by Calvin Miller It was a gift sent by a great friend What a treasure it has been for me I laughed and cried His transparency on real life moments and emotions that all faithful pastors face was a breath of fresh air for me I highly recommend every pastor to read this book regardless of age or experience.

    This is an interesting book written from a seasoned pastor, Calvin Miller, to help younger pastors who are going into pastoral ministry in the form of 35 different letters The book is helpful is describing practical day to day issues that may arise during the course of ministry, and he gives words of wisdom based off of his personal experience The book has both a combination of seriousness and humour of which might be overdone my personal preference But nonetheless, it is a heart warming book wi [...]

    I loved this book Think of it almost like the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes an old pastor sitting down over coffee with a young pastor and giving him some advice.You probably won t agree with everything Miller says But there is great wit and wisdom in his advice Even though I never got to meet him, I m grateful for his book and the conversation he created with it.

    A mix of good and badAs a reformed Presbyterian minister, newly minted, it was helpful to read advice from another perspective There are some things in this book I don t have to worry about as a Presbyterian but there are some good nuggets of gold and some good advice here Some minor disagreements arise because of the way we approach interpret Scripture.

    An amazing healing and soothing balm Dr Miller was my preaching professor at SWBTS What an incredibly wise, humble, supremely talented man He is irreplaceable and is dearly missed on this earth.

    Calvin Miller has tackled a much needed subject that will be an encouragement to those young men entering the ministry field as well as older men in ministry that need encouragement and a good laugh Too often when men surrender to ministry they do so with open and somewhat naive hearts They want to serve God so badly and they want to serve the flock that they often find themselves quickly overwhelmed by all that goes into this field It is after all unlike any other field of work on this planet.I [...]

    When I started this book I was so warmed by the sense that I was talking with a grandfatherly, seasoned, ministry veteran It felt like we were sitting on his porch as he told me stories of ministry and I appreciated the vulnerability he was willing to have with some of his faults and failures But before long that image began to disappear and be replaced with the image of talking with a bit of a temperamental, erratic, and crotchety grandpa.One of the things that made this book most difficult to [...]

    Few books written about ministry make me laugh out loud Cringe, yes Depressed, yes But this book had some great one liners and zingers The problem was that there also a lot of groans Now, I shouldn t put this on the quality of the book itself Calvin Miller is a self declared evangelical and Southern Baptist It is to be expected that he would take swipes at people on the other side of the spectrum and refer to pastors with exclusively male pronouns Still, I did enjoy parts of this book, though no [...]

    Love the cover cool, crisp, clean Love the title when you give a nod to Rainier Maria Rilke, I expect good things.In this case, I wasn t disappointed Calvin Miller s letters cover a wide range of issues that young pastors will face He is candid, as if writing to a dear friend, and wise with all his years of being a pastor.I settled quickly into Miller s writing I loved it For once, an author who doesn t endeavor to oversimplify everything, as if readers are stupid Plus, Miller is funny dry humor [...]

    Calvin Miller, a long time pastor and writer who I had never even heard of before, has captured my heart with his book, Letters to a Young Pastor This is the book, aka diary, I have always wanted a peek into Pastors have a hard time of it We must love the unlovely, keep a smile on our face, shoulder the burden of the gospel, all while maintaining our own sanity and salvation Mr Miller sheds light on his own mistakes in ministry and made me laugh over and over with his personal stories Ministry i [...]

    Good book Great content and wisdom from a man who has walked the road of ministry However, I believe it was poorly written, edited, and compiled That aside, its a great book It was refreshing to read a book where the author was unabashed concerning his convictions Though I had different viewpoints at parts with content, it was nonetheless inspiring and impressive to get inside the mind of a pastor who has been through many experiences in ministry and maintained a healthy marriage, family, and mi [...]

    I loved reading this book, as I am still a young pastor with much to learn I appreciate Miller s wisdom and experience I also appreciate that he doesn t bow down to either the mega church culture that looms so largely over evangelicalism, or to the emergent emerging church whatever that is Good read for pastors much to do with heart soul, than mechanics of pastoring.

    Compared to a work like Spurgeon s Lectures to His Students, this work was quite lacking Though I enjoyed certain chapters and found there to be some good points within the book, I don t see myself referencing this work much again or recommending it to others It started well, a very seasoned saint with wisdom to share, but that feeling didn t endure throughout the book.

    This is written as letters to young pastors from the vantage point of Calvin Miller s many decades as a pastor He gives wise advice on a variety of issues pastor s face in today s church One of my favorite quotes is The Holy Spirit don t sponsor no copycats He never leads any two pastors to do things in exactly the same way Be as individual as your fingerprint.

    Jeff Bjorgan
    Miller is such a fun writer to read a good dose of honest, crusty, humorous, and wise advise for not only pastors but anyone that finds themselves in the local parish The book has a similar flare to it as his memoir, Life is Mostly Edges and he quotes a great deal from his book on leadership A must read or Bible College graduates, or any pastor for that matter.

    Jeff Short
    This is an excellent book written by a veteran pastor to young pastors as a series of letters on various topics Miller gives practical advice based on life experience He is surprisingly open and honest as he writes and I found the book encouraging overall The target demographic is limited, but young and middle aged pastors will benefit from reading it.

    Matthew Richard
    This was a great read for me I appreciated Miller s candor about ministry He managed to speak in spiritual terms that did not come across as phony He is the real deal in my opinion, and offers great insight cloaked in a generous and humorous spirit Sure, he rambles a little and repeats himself at times, but so does my grandfather That doesn t mean he isn t full of wisdom

    Seth Pierce
    This was an amazing book The author, a seasoned pastor, deals with the gritty side of pastoral ministry His openness about his own struggle with atheism is particularly moving Miller is a tremendous wordsmith and the reading is a delight Can t recommend enough

    Duncan
    The book had some good advice for the novice and it will make a great read for the young pastors.

    Job Dalomba
    Letter type books always draw my interest and so does Calvin Miller Needless to say I enjoyed this one.

    Lee Button
    Decades of pastoral ministry and seminary teaching have provided Miller with great insight His letters are transparent, humorous, and provocative And not just for a young pastor.

    Curtis
    I enjoyed the book He reminds me of Eugene Peterson, a little Only Baptist, and humorous.

    Andy
    Lots of practical advice for pastors A tad preachy at times, but good advice nonetheless.
