The Pastor's Wife
Full Product Description
Like most pastors' wives, Gloria Furman has found herself shouldering the burden of unrealistic expectations.
'Who am I? What am I? Am I supposed to be playing some sort of role? If so, where did I put that script?' she asks.
But, she argues, our identity as a woman, a wife or a pastor's wife must come second to our primary reference point: that of being found in Christ. With honesty and humour, and a truly fascinating window into the Middle East where she lives, Gloria helps us to love the Chief Shepherd and his under-shepherd, to love the church and look forward to the return of Christ.
The Pastor's Wife by Gloria Furman was published by Inter-Varsity Press in April 2015 and is our 19115th best seller. The ISBN for The Pastor's Wife is 9781783592777.

The Pastor's WifeCatherine Clark, via The Good Book Stall
Gloria Furman writes an encouraging book for those women in ministry with their husbands. She herself has four young children and has been in Dubai planting Redeemer Church with her husband Dave.
She is honest about her experiences showing how any woman who has been or is in her situation has had to juggle church life, live with the expectations and demands from others, keep her home and give time to her husband and children.
However, in the midst of her occasional loneliness, and even times of utter despair as to how everything can be held togather, Gloria Furman hits the nail on the head by describing that ministry should be always Christ centred. Her identity is in Christ, it is not in being a mother, a wife or a pastor. The central question of ministry is who is the ministry for; the answer is clear - it is for Christ and Him alone. Every need in life and every dream comes from Him. The ministry to people is the expression of love for Christ and keeping that central will give joy whatever life brings.
