Christian leaders throughout history have held differing perspectives regarding balancing (or not balancing) family and ministry. This book takes three historical Christian leaders (John Wesley, George Whitefield, and Jonathan Edwards). All believed you should 'spend and be spent,' in the work of the ministry. All were married. Each held a different perspective on how to balance the two. Their convictions influenced what their marriages were like--for good or ill. Many couples today struggle with how God views the relationship between family and ministry. This book gleans insights from these examples and gives biblical guidelines and counsel from some modern day Christian leaders too.
