Sacred Privilege by Kay Warren
Book: "Sacred Privilege: Your Life and Ministry as a Pastor's Wife"
Author: Kay Warren
264 pages, hardcover
I was expecting this book to be a guide to how to be a good wife to a husband in the ministry. I thought it would be like a cheerleader to the readers for doing good work in the home and in the church. But I could not get past the first chapter.
The author explains in the preface that she is going to be "raw" and "transparent." I didn't realize she was going to describe some of the sins and terrible experiences in her own life. This is not what I thought the book was going to be about. Perhaps others will find help in reading this, but I found it discouraging and depressing. I was looking for rest and peace and sweet holiness. There was none of that in the first chapter. I cannot get past that. The title is a bit misleading.
