Humorist Artemus Ward, a favorite author of President Abraham Lincoln, estimated the river Platte to be “a mile wide and an inch deep.” Many pastors, if they were honest, would say that Ward could have easily been describing their own spirituality. They are a mile wide, and an inch deep. If you feel like your depth of intimacy with God is an inch deep, while your ministry responsibilities stretch you a mile wide, then this book was written for you. For pastors and the rest of us, Mile Wide, Inch Deep will help you experience God beyond the shallows. It’s possible to go deeper.
