Free Stuff Fridays

This week’s Free Stuff Friday’s is sponsored by The Good Book Company, whom you will recognize as this week’s site sponsor.

ZealEvery year, lots of people who are involved in Christian ministry (whether paid or unpaid) find themselves having to step back from it because they are exhausted and simply cannot carry on.

Christopher Ash knows this experience all too well. As a pastor of a growing church, and then in his role training people for ministry, he has found himself on the edge of burnout a number of times, and has pastored many younger ministers who were at risk of the same.

His wisdom has been distilled into Zeal without Burnout. This practical and biblical guide will help Christians develop the mindset and lifestyle to protect themselves from burnout and serve Jesus for the long term in a sustainable way. Whether you feel close to exhaustion or can’t imagine it ever happening to you, it would be prudent to read this book.

“Christopher brings to this important subject, not just a personal experience of burnout, but a keen eye to the Bible, and wise pastoral insight into the pressures many of us face as we live for Jesus.”

From the foreword by Alistair Begg

This is a book written for all zealous followers of Jesus: for pastors and Christian leaders entrusted with pastoral oversight; but also for the many Christian men and women who labor sacrificially to serve in their local churches in addition to all the busyness of work and family life.

We’re offering 5 winners a ministry pack of this important new book. A ministry pack contains five hardback copies of Zeal without Burnout, so that church staff teams or elderships can read it together—or so that copies can be given to volunteers leading key ministries in the church.
