    O "tio Stott" nos apresenta quatro problemas que todo pastor enfrenta: 1. O problema do desânimo; 2. O problema da autodisciplina; 3. O problema dos relacionamentos; e 4. O problema da juventude. Ele oferece conselhos extremamente preciosos, visando superar - ou ao menos dirimir - esses problemas. Uma obra para ser lida uma vez e uma vez e uma vez...

    Vintage Stott. This is a collection of four addresses at University missions conference. Strong exposition married with a pastoral heart. The sermon on being a young leader was my favorite.

    A short yet convicting book where Stott addresses challenges for Christian leaders. Stott identifies 4 problems: Discouragement, Self-Discipline, Relationships and Youth. A key take away is that a Christian leader’s most important attribute is not their knowledge or teaching, it is their character. Ones character overflows into all aspects of ministry and is essential for true servant leadership. Character overrides any charisma, knowledge or skills one may have.

Stott identifies 4 problems: Discouragement, Self-Discipline, Relationships and Youth. A key take away is that a Christian leader’s most important attribute is not their knowledge or teaching, it is their character. Ones character overflows into all aspects of ministry and is essential for true servant leadership. Character overrides any charisma, knowledge or skills one may have. Christian leadership is about being a servant of others. In Jesus we see the personification of what God expects of leadership, servant heartedness, sacrifice and love. In navigating discouragement, Stott uses 2 Corinthians to highlight the spiritual and physical problems leaders face. When we teach God's word faithfully even in spite of our weaknesses God can challenge and change minds. He shared a story where he lost his voice when preaching in Australia, of how despite his physical weakness God moved through the sermon that was faithful to the word. Another key take away was with self discipline where he highlights the importance of setting aside a monthly or weekly time of rest, to reset and not burn out. Along with this he recommends having a hobby to take one’s mind off ministry and to be reminded of God’s creation e.g he had a hobby watching birds birds. Stott also emphasises the important of devotions, to ensure that a minister of the word is first convicted by the word. Moreover he highlights the importance of listening, in order to minister to others through understanding their underlying deep concerns. An interesting observation that caught my attention was made by one of Stott’s assistant student ministers. Every day as he gave Stott a coffee Stott would mutter the words “I am not worthy”, revealing Stott’s understanding of Grace, remembering God even in the seemingly unimportant things in life. This attitude highlights his reverence, showing the importance of character and humbleness in ministry. This book was a challenging, convicting reminder to do everything in ministry and in life to glorify God. It is a short yet impactful book that uses scripture to deliver timeless advice, relevant to all young leaders.

    This was such an encouraging book especially for those desiring to pursue or beginning in ministry. Each one of his four points speak to many common problems for those beginning ministry. I would encourage everyone to seek advice and learn from those who have experienced what we are now facing in our life and allow them to point us to the cross and cause our focus to be put on Christ.

    This was a helpful little volume. The core of it is based off four talks Dr. Stott gave while in South America. He addresses 'The Problems of Discouragement', 'The Problem of Self-Discipline', 'The Problem of Relationships', and 'The Problem of Youth'. Each chapter is clear and concise offering bits of wisdom. The last chapter is written by two men who were his assistants. They shed light into Dr. Stott's life and character. This was a helpful little volume.

    This brief description of 4 main struggles Christian leaders face is excellent. I readily identified with the first chapter on discouragement. Stott presents the "veil and the body" as two aspects that can create great frustration and evaporate spiritual zeal. This little volume, only recently in print, highlights a conference series where Stott spoke on leadership. His points are biblical, practical, and memorable. I found it inspirational as devotional material. This brief description of 4 main struggles Christian leaders face is excellent. I readily identified with the first chapter on discouragement.

    I never hear people talk about this little book, but I think it’s essential reading. I read it for the first time in college, and I think it’s some of Stott’s best work. It’s essentially 4 sermons that he gave in Quito in the 80’s. If you’re a Christian leader, pick it up. You can read it in an afternoon. I have many times, and I’m always blessed by it.

    I treasure any insight I can gain from Stott on Christian discipline and pastoral leadership. I dream with being obsessed with the Gospel to his degree. His advice was on a more practical end in this book and I found it to be insightful and Lord willing part of my pastorate going forward. My only issue with it was length. The book is so short! I would have loved more.

    Not too many new insights for me, probably because of the fact that Stott’s work has been widely taught in Taiwan. He is still tad too Pietism for me. He has surely demonstrated how to be a Evangelical intellectual in the old times.

    Bukunya yang tipis dan menyegarkan. Bahasanya menbumi berisi nasihat praktis tentang hal paling esensi dalam kehidupan. Bukan hanya untuk pendeta atau pemimpin Kristen, tapi bagi mereka yang menyebut dirinya pengikut Kristus.

    Great short book on leadership. Stott’s writing is very easy to follow because he writes with such clarity, but it is always subtly profound simultaneously. What an encouraging little read this was! Highly recommend for young pastors.

    Short and sweet meditations on what is required for longevity, integrity, and faithfulness in Christian ministry. Easy to return to for encouragement and exhortation. I’ll come around to it again in a year or so.

    This little book is a fantastic and encouraging read for anyone in church or ministerial leadership. The title should be more like “difficulties in spiritual leadership” because the book is about just that. Very insightful, practical, and deeply rooted in Christ.

    I just got finished reading this tiny volume. It is an incredible resource. If you are a young or inexperienced Christian leadership and you want to improve your ministry read this. Stott is a loving pastor to the anxious leaders soul.

    Very practical and biblical assessment of key challenges Christian leaders face - discouragement, staleness due to a lack of self-discipline, the struggle to engage various relationships well, and being looked down on for being young - and how we may begin to address these.

    A short read of 95 pages but oh so powerful for Pastors and Christ leaders. Many sentences highlighted and pages dog-eared. Don't miss this read if you are a leader!!!
