The Pickled Priest and the Perishing Parish: Boomer Pastors Bouncing Back, CrossBooks Publishers, June 2011.

This recently released book is a first-hand account of the struggles and frustrations of a senior pastor in leading a traditional church toward renewal and restoration. Its message is a message of hope and encouragement to fellow boomer pastors, who comprise the largest percentage of senior pastors in evangelical churches today. Hal also challenges these pastors and contends that they are strategically placed and uniquely gifted to lead their churches toward renewal at this critical moment in the history of the American church. The book is available at the CrossBooks Online Bookstore at
