Field Report on Pastoral Care Companion
‘ve been hearing from pastors receiving the Pastoral Care Companion.
This note struck me as particularly helpful, since it explains how a
700+ page book is "just right" after all. (By the way, this same not is
helpful in explaining how we are going to be producing a 1,800+ page
daily prayer resource that will *not* be overwhelming either).
When you sent out word that the LSB Pastor’s Companion was now
available – and then mentioned that it had *700 pages* and was ONE INCH
THICK … I was really worried. I said to myself, "Self – if it’s going
to be THAT *big* , you might just as well carry around a pocket BIBLE!"
(which I often do). Honestly, I was worried: it sounded WAY too big for
constant, day-to-day use. But I went ahead & ordered one … and it
arrived today. And I was *amazed* : this thing *is* really SMALL ! Just
right for carrying around !! Just for fun, I took a caliper &
measured its thickness: it’s *only* 13/16" thick, or 7/8" at the most -
not an entire INCH. Maybe it’s a "mental image" thing, akin to saying
"$29.99" instead of "Thirty bucks," but … it really ISN’T as big as I
had thought. Not too big, not too little … it really IS "just right."
