This book is a must for all those starting out in pastoral ministry and essential for all those wishing to continue in it. By a combination of superb biblical exposition and sensitive application reflecting a wealth of personal ministerial experience, the author not only shows how to endure criticism but flourish through it. A little gem of a book. --Melvin Tinker "Director of Theology, The Christ Church Newland Network, Hull."
To be able to handle criticism well is a skill which all pastors need to learn. Any ministry, even the best, will take flak from time to time and it is easy to fall into crippling self-pity. When we are criticized what we need is a cool head, Biblical common sense and the comfort of Christ. This excellent book provides us with all three. --John Benton "Director for Pastoral Support, The Pastor's Academy, London Seminary"
