Mondays With My Old Pastor Book Review

Book Review of Monday's With My Old Pastor
  by Jose Luis Navajo
"Sometimes, all we need is a reminder from someone who has walked before us."

      At the beginning of this book, Pastor Jose Navajo finds he has burned his candle at both ends and finds little left to enjoy about pastoring his church.  Day planners, people with problems and lack of inspiration has left him unmotivated to continue on with his ministry.  As a last ditch effort to regain ground, he goes to see his "old" pastor on a Monday.  His pastors message and guidance is so profound, that it leads to many more Monday's of visiting together Spoiler: As the Monday's go on, Navajo realizes that his old pastors health is quickly failing and he is coming close to death.  In these last weeks and days of life, a spring of godly wisdom pours from the old pastor into Navajo until his final breath.  

     My mind is still reeling after just finishing this book last night.  It's such a powerful read, that I could barely put it down; and finished it quickly.  Aside from the Bible, there is more truth, love, power, reflection, instruction and promise in this book, than any other book I've ever read.  Whether you are in the ministry or you are a follower of Christ, there is so much to glean from this book.  The fifteen principles that you find in it's pages and life changing and like jewels that you find yourself wanting to protect and cherish.  I cannot stress loudly and strongly enough how important this book is.  I will be buying a copy for my husband and my pastor today.  What a true blessing.  What notable encouragement.  This is honestly a book for all ages, walks of life and will forever be completely timeless and relevant.
