The modern day Minister's wife has many distinctive issues to face, not something that is fully appreciated. Caught between the expectations of the congregation and a busy husband it can be a lonely existence, fraught with tensions and requiring vast reserves of diplomacy, but it can also be a wonderfully fulfilling and enriching experience, where your gifts can be used to the full.
Heather Tinker, a minister's wife for more than 20 years outlines the expectations that people have of the minister and his wife, both realistic and totally over the top. She offers practical advice about how to help people lower their unrealistic expectations and some words of wisdom to minister's wives who feel they have impossible demands placed on their shoulders.
"This thoroughly practical offers advice for many aspects of manse life, looking honestly at the difficulties and drawbacks in the life of a pastor's wife; being in the public eye, coping with criticism, keeping spiritually fresh, finding friends, living on a limited income... But she sees the plusses far more strongly than the minuses, both for herself and for the children." —Rosemary Green, Wife of Michael Green, Advisor on Evangelism to the Archbishops of Canterbury and York.
"Alongside the quite intimate, personal, touches there is good biblical teaching and spiritual content in the book. The whole theme of husband and wife in ministry together is desperately urgent and must not be lost." —Margaret Hacking, wife of Philip Hacking Related Products
