Wisdom from a Pastor's Heart is as simple and straightforward as its title. To assemble this volume, editor Douglas Connelly (author of The Bible for Blockheads) combed the annals of a publication called The Minister's Manual, which has served for more than 75 years as a source of sermon wisdom and anecdotes for Protestant ministers. Wisdom draws from the best of these texts and groups them into 30 subject headings, such as Forgiveness, Marriage, Parenting, Money, Anger, and Joy. In the process of assembling this Bartlett's-style anthology, Connelly was guided by one question: "In what areas of life do we Christians need the guidance of a wise pastor, and what would that pastor say to us?" The result, he says, is a book that will be a "pastor in your pocket" for those seeking spiritual guidance. Christians with a healthy appetite for inspirational aphorisms, such as "The best cure for shaking knees is kneel on them" and "With God, failure is never final," will likely find Wisdom from a Pastor's Heart to be a feast. -Michael Joseph GrossFrom the Publisher:
"Soul-Chef, Doug Connelly, serves up a smorgasbord of wisdom in palatable pieces to heal the wounded, give hope to the hurting or just whet the appetite of nibblers who will taste and see that the Lord is good!"
—Phyllis Wallace, "Woman to Woman" radio show host
"As a talk show host, writer and public speaker, I am always scratching for pithy quotes, keen insight and noble sentiments. Doug Connelly graces me with just such a collection in Wisdom from a Pastor's Heart."
—Al Kresta, "Kresta in the Afternoon" radio show host
"Douglas Connelly gives us wise counsel for our deepest inner needs from his own observation, faith, and experience, and he buttresses his convictions with the carefully selected testimonies of many others. Every important juncture in the human pilgrimage is faced with sensitivity and challenge. Wisdom from a Pastor's Heart is a wonderfully helpful and inspiring book either for ordinary times or for times of crisis and special need."
—James Cox, author of the annual Minister's Manual
