I thoroughly enjoyed this book!! At points it is very densely written in that it is like eating a piece of very rich cheese cake; you take it one small bite at a time. BUT - I loved it and enjoyed it like a daily devotional reading myself.

It reads much like a reflective devotional specifically written for pastors. I loved the way that he walked through the life of the pastor in a way that Luther laid out the various parts of his Small Catechism with focus on prayer, the Creed, the Ten Commandmen

We are all just beggars telling other beggars where there is bread. (DT Niles). This is a powerful book and speaks so deeply to the spirituality pastors must embody. This book is a treasure; one I will read and reread.
