Sensing Jesus – Zack Erswine
Recently I read through Sensing Jesus by Zack Erswine. I had heard good things about this book since a marketing friend told me how great it was as she read an advance manuscript last summer. As I began to read it on a recent vacation I read it with a completely open mind and no preconceived thoughts. I am glad I did too. I was able to drink deeply from the well that is Christ as I did. I can easily recommend this book without hesitation to anyone. It is a book that will help you in your walk with Christ through this rough and tumble life.
This book really resonated with me because I have been in a place where I was more or less expected to be a super pastor and to do be everything to everyone, to be perfect and to be available 24 hours a day 7 days a week regardless of what might be going on in the lives of my wife or son at the time. To be honest, that experience was hellacious for me. I have been to a lot of conferences and meetings where we discuss the burnout rate of pastors and how many do not end well, yet we never discuss the things Erswine does in this book. Maybe it is time we do so. Read this book, it will help you.
