  • Michael’s experiences training and mentoring military chaplains
  • The story behind these letters and how they made their way into this book
  • Wisdom on staying consistent with devotional reading and prayer time
  • The importance of studying original languages in college, seminary, and ministry
  • The lost art of letter writing

The Secret Life of a Pastor (and other intimate letters on ministry) by Michael A. MiltonAbout the Book:
Living a life of Christian service is tough. Quite rightly we can have big hopes for what can be done and dealing with discouragement and disappointment when these dreams shatter can be a painful experience. Michael Milton has a real heart for those who are beginning that work, this heart comes out in brief, honest, penetrating letters that are gold for a pastor just starting out, and remain tremendously helpful to the rest of us, as we seek to serve Christ in our daily lives.
