I don't give this book a five star review because I agree with the theology of the author. In many cases, we disagree. But the value of this book is in cultivating a pastor's heart. I feel like I have been sitting with an experienced pastor for days while he shared what he learned about loving Jesus and loving His people. This book is encouraging and challenging to all in ministry and will help you be a better shepherd. God is helping me to be a more patient pastor in the sanctification of his people. He is also helping me to be a more pursuing pastor with straying sheep. He has used this book to help me with those areas.
