Innovative Ministry Leader just finished reading an advance copy of Anne Jackson’s new book “Mad Church Disease.” What an amazing resource for every Pastor, Worship Leader, Ministry Leader, Business Professional, etc. This is a book that focuses on organizing your life, to have a healthy balance with work, family, and personal time.
Popular Communicator/Blogger, Anne Jackson (www.flowerdust.net) shares her personal story of how burnout has effected her personal life throughout the years. Anne focuses on the emotional, physical, relational and spiritual effects of the burnout epidemic.
Mad Church Disease does a complete job at identifying burnout, the risks, and how to recover. The book takes a serious look at the health factors and how serious this silent disease can be for you or your organization. The book concludes with the focus of how to process the pain of being hurt in the past, which almost everyone can relate to at some point in their life. Beyond reading Mad Church Disease, this is a great resource to have concurrent in your life and to share with your entire team.
What we really admire about this book, is that Anne shares honesty and real stories of her past, that you will be able to relate with. At the end of each Chapter, there is a section called the “Exam Room,” which will allow you to self assess your own life. You will also find at the end of each Chapter a “Second Opinion” section that will express the views of some world class leaders such as Bill Hybels, Craig Groeschel, Perry Noble, and more.
Innovative Ministry Leader strongly endorses this book and you will be able to pick up a copy in February of 2009. We will be doing some more focuses on Mad Church Disease before the book is released so stay tuned. You can also pre-order from Amazon by clicking here.
