Book of the Month - Mile Wide, Inch Deep by Dave Jacobs

Mile Wide, Inch Deep

Authored by Dave Jacobs

Dave Jacobs was a pastor for twenty-eight years before retiring in 2006 and founding Small Church Pastor, an organization that provides encouragement, coaching, consulting, and resources for pastors and leaders of all sized churches, but with a focus on smaller churches. Dave and his wife Ellen have been married for thirty-five years and live out in the country in the beautiful Rogue Valley of southern Oregon

Humorist Artemus Ward, a favorite author of President Abraham Lincoln, estimated the river Platte to be "a mile wide and an inch deep." Many pastors, if they were honest, would say that Ward could have easily been describing their own spirituality. They are a mile wide, and an inch deep. 

If you feel like your depth of intimacy with God is an inch deep, while your ministry responsibilities stretch you a mile wide, then this book was written for you. For pastors and the rest of us, Mile Wide, Inch Deep will help you experience God beyond the shallows. It's possible to go deeper.
