Fallen Pastor Book

Shortly after I fell, I began call­ing other fallen pas­tors to try and make sense of what I was going through. I knew I had sinned and I wanted to know if I was ever going to feel whole again. I wanted to know if I was ever going to find peace. A few months later, I found myself ask­ing more ques­tions — “How can a fall be pre­vented? How can churches help fallen pas­tors?”

Thanks to Civ­i­tas Press, the abil­ity to engage the church cul­ture and ask such ques­tions is a reality.

Fallen Pas­tor: Find­ing Restora­tion in a Bro­ken World, also avail­able in Kin­dle for­mat, is a book that exam­ines the fall of the pas­tor by look­ing at the sto­ries of pas­tors who have sinned, look­ing for com­mon threads. It also exam­ines the church cul­ture in which pas­tors fall, ask­ing crit­i­cal ques­tions of it. It con­tains help­ful sta­tis­tics that help break down the rea­sons pas­tors fall in the first place.

I pray our pas­tors can be for­given after they fall and that peo­ple of faith will pur­sue them in com­pas­sion as Christ pur­sues us. I also hope that churches and pas­tors will work together to under­stand the cul­ture in which we live to pre­vent fur­ther min­istry failure.

Shortly after I fell, I began calling other fallen pastors to try and make sense of what I was going through. I knew I had sinned and I wanted to know if I was ever going to feel whole again. I wanted to know if I was ever going to find peace. A few months later, I found myself asking more questions – “How can a fall be prevented? How can churches help fallen pastors?”

Thanks to Civitas Press, the ability to engage the church culture and ask such questions is a reality.

Fallen Pastor: Finding Restoration in a Broken World, also available in Kindle format, is a book that examines the fall of the pastor by looking at the stories of pastors who have sinned, looking for common threads. It also examines the church culture in which pastors fall, asking critical questions of it. It contains helpful statistics that help break down the reasons pastors fall in the first place.

I pray our pastors can be forgiven after they fall and that people of faith will pursue them in compassion as Christ pursues us. I also hope that churches and pastors will work together to understand the culture in which we live to prevent further ministry failure.
