Overview

"The sabbatical is an entrenched tradition in academia," says Eugene Peterson. "But pastors, committed to the life of the spirit, a life at least as strenuous, if not more so, than the life of the mind, rarely get sabbaticals. I wonder why."

This 34-page resource unpacks the underestimated value of taking a ministry sabbatical. It also gives pastors guidance for making the most of a sabbatical when they do take one.
