About the Book
Preachers get fired more often than NFL coaches. Some sources suggest that as many 18,000 ministers are terminated or leave the ministry under duress every year. That is fifty a day, every day. String them all together and you have a slow train of misery chugging down a track to nowhere.

In the book Ten Ways to Kill a Preacher, the author offers a frank exposé of this epidemic in the often hidden religious culture of churches. Ministry can be a rewarding experience for many servants of God, but with just a few twists here and there the road can suddenly grow bumpy and the way life-threatening.

Consider these statistics gleaned from sources such as Focus on the Family, Ministry Today, Charisma Magazine, TNT Ministries, and other respected groups:

•1,500 pastors leave the ministry permanently each month in America
•80% of seminary graduates who enter ministry will leave the ministry within the first five years.
•70% of pastors continually battle depression.
•80% of pastors and 85% of their spouses feel discouraged in their roles.
•90% of pastors said the hardest thing about the ministry is uncooperative people.
•70% of pastors are grossly underpaid.

This book cuts across all denominational boundaries. It is a clarion call to action by everyone involved in church life and ministry.
