Mad Church Disease: Overcoming the Burnout Epidemic
by Anne Jackson

Growing up the daughter of a pastor, author Anne Jackson experienced firsthand the conflict, stress, and struggle church leaders often face. She vowed her life in ministry would be different. Yet years later, as a church leader, she was hospitalized. Stress was wreaking havoc on her body.

Using anecdotal parallels between Mad Cow Disease and burnout in the church, Mad Church Disease helps readers see what church leaders are facing. It also provides practical and positive suggestions. The book is lively and informative. It’s a potential lifesaver for anyone in ministry—salaried leaders and volunteers—who would like to understand, prevent, or treat the epidemic of burnout.

For added perspective, almost every chapter brings you a brief essay featuring a different senior pastor’s own “take” on ministry burnout.

Mad Church Disease offers brief intro comments and second opinions from Mark Batterson, Nancy Ortberg, Gary Kinnaman, and others.
