Being Holy, Being Human


Christianity Today, Word 1988

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde had it easy …

… compared to the challenge facing pastors every day. There’s often a terrible tension between God’s call to holiness and our frail humanity. The Scriptures clearly state God’s call, and the Christian leader wants to obey. Parishioners expect their ministers to be models of godliness, too.

Yet pastors who are honest are also painfully aware of their shortcomings. But how can they admit their doubts and temptations without harming their ministries? In whom can they confide?

In Being Holy, Being Human, Jay Kesler draws on his years of experience as pastor, ministry leader, and Christian college president to provide answers. With the insight and helpful candor for which he is known, Kesler helps pastors to live with the tension creatively, to embrace God’s call while expressing and fully enjoying their humanity.

This is the thirteenth volume of THE LEADERSHIP LIBRARY, a continuing series from LEADERSHIP, the practical journal for church leaders published by Christianity Today, Inc. Other volumes in the series include Leaders, Making the Most of Mistakes and When to take a Risk.
