Editorial Reviews

Review

“Years ago, when I read the first edition of High Call, High Privilege, Gail MacDonald inspired me to trust God and to consider my calling as a woman in ministry as a high privilege. Now, seventeen years later, Gail has lovingly undertaken the task of sharing new insights and wisdom gained over the intervening years concerning the privilege of serving our Lord along with her husband. Thank you, Gail—we are indebted to you for staying true to your call.”
—Cynthia Heald, author of Becoming a Woman of Excellence -- Review

"Even in those cheerless time which will come, we can affirm that they are neither the terminus nor the norm of experience. Instead, they are points of growth from which can emerge a clearer vision of how to reflect the splendor of God and the joys of personal relationships. God means for us to finish strong."

This quote is from the introduction to Gail MacDonald's book-High Call, High Privilege: A Pastor's Wife Speaks to Every Woman in a Place of Responsibility. I like this quote because "finishing strong" is something that I think about and pray for often. At the end of Paul's life he writes to Timothy,

"I have fought the good fight,

I have finished the race,

I have kept the faith."

(2 Timothy 4:7)

I remember reading this verse in a Bible class my first year of college and being inspired by Paul's confidence. I talked about it with my professor after class because I was baffled that Paul could say "I have," I asked my professor if that was a little arrogant and assumptive of Paul. At the time I thought most people should say it this way, "I've tried to fight the good fight, I've finished as much of the race as I could, I've done my best to keep the faith." The professor explained to me that through God's power, Paul was able to accomplish all that the Lord had called him to do in this life. God had saved Paul and then had completed the good work He had started in him. He said, "God can do this work in your life too, so that one day you could say these things with confidence."

High Call, High Privilege is a testimonial/autobiography of MacDonald's journey through life in church ministry. Her statement "God means for us to finish strong" is a theme that stood out to me throughout the book.

Even for someone not in full-time ministry this book really shows an example of what one could face when you committ your life to God's work. I would recommend it anyone either in ministry or considering it. And though it's for women, any man, either married or engaged to a woman who will be involved in ministry would find it useful to see what she will be dealing with.

This book is better than I had hoped. Gail MacDonald points out aspects of life in ministry that really get down to the core of the matter. I recommend this book to single women living a life focused on ministry too because the truths are transferable.

This is good book for one who is in a ministry. There is solid wisdom shared in this book. It is a classic and adaptable to those who may be doing 'ministry' a bit different but peoples responses to their leaders often remain the same generation to generation.

In addition to being better able to help other women as they do life...your personal, deeper side will be fed and drawn closer to thee A to Z (aka alpha and omega :)
