Former Executive Director of Assemblies of God World Missions
The authors selected are perfect for this volume; people like Oswald Chambers, Eugene Peterson, John Piper, Andrew Murray, and others - ministry leaders and pastors with good "theoretical" or conceptual knowledge as well as practical, applicable, been-through-the-fire type of advice and encouragement.
The author's own passages are some of the best. They are words any Christian, but especially leaders and pastors, can appreciate - he speaks honestly and is "real." If you are a pastor, this is a helpful, insightful, encouraging book that draws you to prayer and gratitude. It is not a recipe book, nor the latest-greatest "this will make you successful and famous" leadership manual; it's a book with the heartbeat of the Bible and Christ. It is a book that reassures you what you are experiencing is understood; and, you are not alone in experiencing it.
I devoured the book on an international flight and while in Kenya; I read it again when home. Too many books are formulaic; this book is one you can pick up again and again, and always profit from. You can even flip to any passage/chapter that you need, and "feed" on exactly what you need, reaping much fruit and, as the title says, balm.
I am grateful for this balm.
I usually don't read devotional books, but Shepherds Balm captured me all the way through. I rate "inner life" books according to how they stir up my heart versus any other possible consideration. Richard's book stirred me big time! I reread some of the entries to fully soak in what the Spirit spoke to me.
If you are looking for a new release of the Spirit's presence, pick this up and be a sponge with it.
The only reason I gave it four stars was the organization of the content. As I wrote above, it's done in a devotional manner and I for one am not wired to steadily read that way. That approach may fit perfectly in your "bread basket." If so, you might even give it a 5+ rating!
