Review

"At last here is a much-needed guide for pastors'' wives penned by seasoned pastors'' wives! In preparing future pastors for ministry, my wife, Mae, and I have always sought to hold special teaching times for seminary wives in our home to address many of the issues that these women of God handle so well in this new P&R book. I believe this is now the standard text for seminary wives, as well as those pastoral families—pastor and wife—who should set apart time to revisit the timeless themes. A few years ago I wrote a song called, ''Thank God for the Pastor''s Wife.'' After reading this book, I starting singing it again! I commend this wonderful collection of thoughtful and Biblical essays to the Church with joy and confidence!"
—Dr. Michael A. Milton, Fourth Chancellor of Reformed Theological Seminary, Author, Singer-songwriter

"What a privilege to glean wisdom from these women who have served faithfully in the church and in the home as pastor''s wives. I was challenged, encouraged and refreshed by this insightful and helpful book."
—Trisha DeYoung, Wife of Kevin DeYoung, Senior Pastor, University Reformed Church, East Lansing, Michigan

"An exceptional book written by seventeen different pastor''s wives and one pastor''s daughter. The letters are personal, warm, convicting, and engaging. The wives'' use of Scripture shows not only each wife''s maturity but also their love for the Lord and for their husbands. I highly recommend this book to all women and especially to pastor''s wives!"
—Martha Peace, Biblical Counselor; Author of The Excellent Wife

"I have spent more than thirty years in a pastor''s family—first as a pastor''s daughter and then as a pastor''s wife—and this is the first book I have read addressing the full range of experiences in ministry life with the perspective that this is truly a life of privilege and blessing. When my husband finished seminary and began at our first church, I had no such book, though I could have used one! Stewart has assembled a much-needed tool for pastor''s wives and addresses our unique situation with gentleness, honesty, and wisdom."
—Megan Hill, Blogger at SundayWomen.com; Contributor to Christianity Today''s Her.meneutics ---

Letters to Pastors'' Wives is an exceptional book written by seventeen different pastor''s wives and one pastor''s daughter. The letters are personal, warm, convicting, and engaging. The wives'' use of Scripture shows not only each wife''s maturity but also her love for the Lord and for her husband. I highly recommend this book to all women and especially to pastors'' wives! --Martha Peace, Biblical Counselor and Author of "The Excellent Wife"

Was so excited to give this to one of my dearest friends as she and her husband begin a new adventure for Christ. It is her birthday in a few days and this is perfect. How sad I was to see it arrive completely bend and with what looks like a dirty footprint on the side. Normally, I wouldn''t hesitate and I would send this back. However, a replacement wouldn''t arrive on time for her birthday. I am still grateful to give it to her but would not be from this company again. Choosing to use the dirty cover as an example of how Christ accepts us AS WE ARE. That being said, a product in this condition never should have been sent.

I''m a Pastor, and It Was a Blessing to My Wife

Usually, when my wife is reading a good book, she will relate to me later what she has been reading. With this book, she frequently interrupted what I was doing in order to read an excerpt to me. Rather than trying to join with her and commiserate like many articles and books of this stripe do, the articles in this volume started from the same biblical commitments that my wife shares, and directed her to her Lord for joy, stability, and instruction. Some of the letters did a better job than others of applying Scripture to the issue; others did a better job of giving practical suggestions. In any anthology-type volume, there will be a little unevenness, but this one was heavy on the helpful contributions and light on the unhelpful ones.

Excellent read from women with experience
Reviewed in the United States on May 28, 2016
This is one of the best "pastors'' wives" books I have ever read. I love reading the experiences and insight of other seasoned, wise pastors'' wives. I now purchase the book as a gift for other friends or young women who are marrying pastors.

This book is excellent. I can''t even exaggerate the fact. As a young pastors wife myself I have found this to be such a valuable book to continually refer to. Firstly, the way it is written is very personal. These women have walked the road and they care to share their insights. I felt as though they were all spiritual mothers/ sisters who understood! It is also very real, it doesn''t seek to scare you about all the negative aspects yet it is not afraid to tell you than in some areas, you will need to toughen up. It also deals with all those topics that can often weigh heavy on the heart and points you to the Saviour who strengthens and heals. It is wonderful to know that in certain trials, you are not alone and the Lord has sustained those who have gone before you. I highly recommend it to a wife with a husband in the ministry or going to be. It is like having a personal friend that steers you to biblical thinking every time.Most around you may not understand and because of that this book is so refreshing! It is challenging, and encouraging. I have a lot of books, but this is probably the best i have read on the subject.
