Featured Reviews

Mike Milton is a pastor to pastors...I am so grateful that now, in these letters, he has distilled that wisdom for a whole new generation of pastors.

George Grant, Senior Pastor, Parish Presbyterian Church, Franklin, Tennessee is a modern version of C. H. Spurgeon's Lectures To My Students...they should be read by every pastor, those studying for ministry, and those who care for ministers.

Paul Kooistra, Former President, Erskine College and Theological Seminary, Due West, South Carolina

This book is nectar. It is full of rich insights and helpful suggestions that cannot possibly fail to bless the reader and enrich their advice is: buy it and read it often.

Tom Holland, Director of Biblical Research, Wales Evangelical School of Theology, Bridgend, Wales

...has provided an invaluable service to ministers by writing a series of letters to young seminarians about the ministry...take full advantage of this book.

Michael Ross, Senior Pastor, Christ Covenant Church, Charlotte, North Carolina

...the personal warmth and pastoral overtones make this volume appealing and helpful.

Luder G. Whitlock, Executive Director of CNL Charitable Foundation, Orlando, Florida


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.

... full of wonderful nuggets... this short and readable book would obviously be an encouraging read for someone heading off to theological college or investigating pastoral ministry. However, there are also extremely helpful reminders for those already along the path of ministry... this book is a wondeful plea for the power of letter writing in ministry, which may find us reaching for our fountain pens!

Evangelicals Now

...quickens the minds and warms the hearts of all who would serve Christ's Church...contains a timeless message-a message which warmed even this old pastor's heart.

Thomas D. Hawkes, Senior Pastor, Uptown Church, Charlotte, North Carolina
