 Some books are okay, many are good or excellent, occasionally one is a priceless treasure. Mondays with My Old Pastor is a treasure.

 A young pastor in Spain, facing discouragement and feeling he should resign from leadership, meets fourteen times with an older retired pastor. The advice from the older man invigorates and renews the young fellow. Often the older pastor illustrates his lessons with stories. And a strange rose bush at the door to the older man’s house holds meaning for the younger man.

 The translator has captured the music of Spanish in his English—so this is a beautifully written book full of truths. The profound parts are offered within the story of two couples, which adds interest.

 Although written as to and from a pastor, any believer will be encouraged by the wisdom in this book. The concepts aren’t unusual, but so well-put and helpful. The main theme: The meanings of Jesus’ cross for guiding our lives, as explained by the older man.

The ending is a surprise.

About samcivy

I read my first book a week after beginning first grade and haven't slowed down in seventy years. My system often wakes me in the night so I keep books on a chair in the bathroom and do a LOT of reading. I'm a free-lance writer/editor and review books for various authors as well as Thomas Nelson Publishers and Amazon.com. I will soon be posting books for a blog tour by KathyWillis.com, a book promoter.
