Case Parker, a worn-out pastor, is shocked by all the good, bad and ugly he has found in pastoral ministry so far. He constantly asks himself this question: Should I stay or should I go? Having reached a point of utter exhaustion he decides to go to Ireland for a three day retreat. Case, and the other Dutch shepherds that join him, end up in all kind of interesting, dangerous and hilarious situations. This story will have you in stitches, will make you feel convicted and hopefully has you changed by the time the story ends.

In his first translated book, Postma offers heartfelt, laugh-out-loud observations on the absurd ways shepherds and sheep alike, try to make themselves look better than they actually are. The Dutch version of the book became a bestseller interweaving humour and spiritual reflection.



This book provides a powerful—and desperately needed—correction to the subtly self-focused and self-sufficient attitudes that can slip into our hearts and ministries so easily. Through simple storytelling and humour, Kees cuts through our defences and goes straight to the heart of the problem: our hearts. But don’t worry—he also provides the refreshing and healing medicine of God’s grace. You’ll laugh, you’ll be challenged, and most of all you’ll be encouraged to find rest in the Lord, and strength to keep going. Seth Lewis, Pastor and author of Dream Small



Kees Postma, besides having a name that’s fun to shout when you stub your toe, is a brilliant writer.  Aside from having to look up certain Dutch ice-skater references, this book is funny, encouraging and takes you on quite an adventure! “- Bob Smiley ,Comedian and recent googlerer of Dutch athletics


Kees Postma (1982) is a pastor and church planter. He and his wife and four kids live in the rural Northern part of Holland called Friesland where he pastors a Baptist church. Next to that he works for European Christain Mission, helping churches plant new churches. His favorite movie of all time is Dumb and Dumber and he loves the harmonies of the Everly Brothers, the thought provoking lyrics of Andrew Peterson and  the fact that he is and always will be a sinner saved by grace.
