Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Dec 27, Merv Budd rated it really liked it. Building Below the Waterline is a book written specifically for pastoral leadership. The author speaks out of a wealth of experience and knows exactly what issues to address and what question to ask in helping pastor's address issue of spiritual self-care and longevity in ministry.
But better than the questions is the advice and counsel. This book is not for everyone, it's not intended to be, but if you are in pastoral ministry I would recommend you read this. Mar 05, Rick Stonestreet rated it it was amazing. This book is excellent for any pastor who is looking for some answers to the struggles and confusions of ministry.

The primary intended audience for this book is young pastors. If you know one, buy this book for them. They will be eternally grateful. If you are not a pastor, this book provides great insight, stories and ideas to improve any man's life. Some of the highpoints of the book for me are: Trust will be sustained only due to wisdom, keeping my word and integrity.
Gordon MacDonald does it again. I have benefitted from every book that I have read of his. This book will truly inspire you to grow deep in knowledge, in vision and in the Word. If you are not a leader at this time, it will certainly help you in other aspects of your life and inspire you to share it with others, becuase we are all leaders of some form, with our co-workers, our family and our friends. One person found this helpful. This is one of the better books I've read in a long time on leadership. Maybe it's that I'm getting older - and this book is Gordon's reflections from many years of experience, but the book stresses character over charisma and motives over methods.
In a world where sadly, we now have lots of celebrity among Christian leaders, this book is a strong call to the quality of the leader's inner world. In a culture where Twitter, Facebook and YouTube can make anyone famous in short order, this book warns against the flashy, and exhorts toward the quality of the leader's heart. I find Gordon MacDonald to be extremely relevant.
I know that many people are searching for something in the area of "Christian living" and that there are numerous "favorite authors" out there. Gordon MacDonald happens to be one that speaks to me, in a very real sense.
It is, as though, he reads my mail. Don't get me wrong, there is a book or two from his pen that I did not find that rich, but for me, this one is another winner.
Building Below the Waterline: Strengthening the Life of a Leader by Gordon MacDonald
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. In a world where life is lived rapidly and where life is lived in out loud publicly in every way, his book is always helpful to remind me to slow down and take time to consider. The consideration of motives over methods is good for all to consider. As with his many other books it is always a hard reminder of the need to pause and refresh. Read it through on a cross country flight and will continue to digest all it has. Highly recommend for anyone in ministry.
Gordon MacDonald hits the need for a strong inner focus. Many of us ministers live above the water line because we think we have already figured out the below. But it takes constant focus below to keep us being real and honest. Good stuff, speaks from a father's heart.
I appreciate his gentle handling of hard truths. Brings out the heart of a true pastor. See all 16 reviews. Most recent customer reviews. Published 1 year ago.
