Review quote

"This is a pastoral letter from a sinner to sinners, composed with gracious humility. Above all The Stain that Stays is biblical. John Armstrong has done his homework. It deserves a wide reading by pastors, denomination leaders, church elders, and all who love the church." R. Kent Hughes (Senior Pastor Emeritus, College Church, Wheaton, Illinois) "This book is a needed corrective to the growing trend to restore fallen ministers into pastoral leadership. Whether one agrees with all John Armstrong's conclusions, he makes a case that desperately needs to be heard." Erwin Lutzer (Senior Pastor, Moody Church, Chicago, Illinois) "Armstrong has considered the issue in Biblical, theological, and historical terms. He has left no stone unturned and yet he has thrown no stones at fallen brothers. The book reflects a properly pastoral tone and a broken heart." R. Albert Mohler (President, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky) 'As the epidemic of moral failure among church leaders shows signs of worsening, the church must carefully re-examine some hard questions in the clear light of scripture. John Armstrong has done this, and here he offers a thoughtful, biblical response - surely the finest book to date on this difficult subject.' John MacArthur (Pastor, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California) 'The lack of serious self-criticism and sustained biblical analysis on this issue plagues the Christian house. This book by John Armstrong takes a sober look at this problem and endeavours to shake us into something radical - that is to engage the Bible obediently.' Tom Nettles (Professor of Historical Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky) 'Eschewing both legalism and apathy, Armstrong points a biblical way forward to protecting God's sheep and recovering fallen shepherds...he has provided us with an extremely valuable, wise and balanced discussion.' Michael Horton (J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology & Apologetics, Westminster Seminary in California, Escondido, California)
