Listen in as Zack Eswine, author of Sensing Jesus: Life and Ministry as a Human Being, gives us a behind-the-scenes look at his own life and ministry. Eswine touches on a variety of topics, from struggling to work through the death of a friend, to dealing with the breakdown of his marriage, to learning how to be a single dad. He encourages us to learn to rest in Jesus—and not our ministry or our good works—in the midst of the ups and downs of life.
Endorsements for Sensing Jesus:
“C. S. Lewis wrote that friendship is born when one man says to another, ‘What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . . .' Many pastors will find a new friend in this remarkable book. What makes this book both approachable and powerful is its honesty—that rare treasure we pastors are sometimes afraid to make our own. Zack Eswine gives us a front row seat to his heart. In seeing him, we see ourselves. But far better, we also see Jesus in his all-sufficiency for us. To everyone who wants to serve the Lord with a heart set free from pretense, I commend Sensing Jesus.”
—Raymond C. Ortlund Jr., Lead Pastor, Immanuel Church, Nashville, Tennessee
“This is one of the finest books on being a pastor written in this generation. I plan to use Sensing Jesus as required read for our pastoral theology students here at Covenant Seminary. The book is heart-wrenchingly honest about Zack’s own hopes and dreams and about the challenges of dealing with the praise that is heaped on a gifted young communicator of God’s Word. It is this rare honesty that makes the book a must read for anyone called to a life of ministry. . . . This will be an outstanding addition to the library of every pastor and teacher, indeed of anyone committed to ministry.” —Jerram Barrs, Resident Scholar of the Francis A. Schaeffer Institute at Covenant Theological Seminary; author, Freedom and Discipleship and The Heart of Prayer
