What Others Are Saying . . .
"What a wise and winsome invitation to the spiritual practice of sabbatical! This is a most helpful offering!"
--Dr. Ruth Haley Barton, author of Invitation to Solitude and Silence and Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership.
"If every beginning minister were given a start-up kit when they began, David Alves' book, would be an essential. . . . I highly recommend this primer for every new and veteran minister who cares about his or her future vitality!"
--Dr. Wayne Cordeiro, author of Leading on Empty and Senior Pastor of New Hope, Oahu
Having benefited from three sabbaticals I strongly recommend this primer for every pastor both as an encouragement and a challenge to examine your life in the light of the pressures of ministry today and the transformation a sabbatical can produce in you.
--Dr. Richard Germaine, Founder/Director, Barnabas Ministries
"Sabbaticals often get trampled on by heightened expectations for additional work rather than fulfilling the deeper longings for abundant, life-giving rest. This resource is designed to grant permission to pastors to take a real sabbatical break from their demanding routine, and provides all the best rationale, resources, and restful suggestions you will need to make it a reality."
--Rev. Dr. Stephen A. Macchia, Founder and President of Leadership Transformations, and author of several books, most recently Crafting A Rule of Life.
