“The Whisper: Overcoming Your Pain in Ministry; An Account of Elijah’s Battle with Stress, Told through the Eyes of a Police Officer Turned Pastor”: a de-stress manual for pastors. “The Whisper: Overcoming Your Pain in Ministry” is the creation of published author Skip Hellmig, a police chaplain, former US Navy man, and married grandfather from Baltimore, Maryland.

Hellmig shares, “I have studied at a Bible college, a seminary, and the Beeson Institute for leadership. So clearly, I am not writing this as an expert nor a practiced professional in the areas of stress, anxiety, or depression. I am writing it because I am concerned for our Christian leadership. It does not take a PhD to see there is a need among the clergy and lay leaders to refresh rather than continuing to ‘write those checks that will someday bounce.’
Most pastors do have strong work ethics! Many are very passionate. They take God’s call seriously. They want to lead and be strong warriors for Christ and represent His Gospel in a manner so that others will believe. In fact, my detective instincts show me many pastors also become ego driven (which is not good) and often measure their own success by how much others notice their accomplishments. I also know many pastors that hold strong feeling of their own inadequacies, because they allowed themselves to write those checks that they could not cash. My first employer used to say, ‘Son, don’t bite off more than you can chew.’ In fact, many of us do just that.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Skip Hellmig’s new book is a wise and necessary account filled with heart, insight, and applicable advice.

With authority, experience, and compassion, Hellmig’s treatment of this pervasive issue helps enliven the spirit of the reader.
