October is Clergy Appreciation Month. 

Although this is publishing a little later than I hoped (due to my mid-month vacation), I wanted to highlight a few excellent new books for Clergy Appreciation Month that might be great gifts to give to your pastor, or if you are a pastor yourself, to treat yourself to or to give to co-pastors or other friends who are pastors.

Diary of a Pastor’s Soul: The Holy Moments in a Life of Ministry

M. Craig Barnes

Diary of a Pastor’s Soul tells the story of a fictionalized pastor, embarking on his final year before retirement, who reflects on the experiences and relationships that have formed his vocation and shaped his soul over a lifetime of pastoral ministry.

Drawing on his own experiences, seasoned pastor Craig Barnes invites readers to embrace the life lessons of a pastor who has been formed by his failures and his fleeting moments of glory, but most of all by discovering the holy in the routine but often quirky duties of being a parish pastor.
Through 52 weekly thematic entries, Barnes presents spirituality in narrative form through a collection of interwoven stories about learning to love others with curiosity, amazement, vulnerability, and most of all gratitude for the grace found in flawed lives.

Barnes’s fictionalized diary approach creatively shows how the pastoral vocation forms mind, heart, and soul, helping pastors make sense of their own calling. With unvarnished honesty, this book eloquently illustrates a lifetime of ministry, revealing how “the Holy haunts the landscape of life.”
