Pastor family book


I'm looking for a book that pastor couples can read/study in a small group setting.

Topics can include:

clergy/pastor couples

clergy/pastor marriage

clergy/pastor child rearing


Any suggestions?

Richard--I was finally scanning some forum topics and noticed your query that has gone unanswered for some time. I wonder if you have considered the fine publication by Sustaining Pastoral Excellence called Marriage and Ministry. I received this a couple of years ago and assume you did too, but possibly not. It's not a "book,"  but it certainly is discussible by pastoral couples.

Two dandy books, albeit a bit old (both still available at Amazon for sure) are Mike Mason's The Mystery of Marriage and Walter Wangeriin's As for Me and My House.

I have never read The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman, but several friends and couples I know have really appreciated that one.

Good reading!
