The Pastor’s Kid by Barnabas Piper received a bit of buzz when it came out a month or two ago.
Barnabas’ father is John Piper, hence the widespread interest, though he has a bit of a following of his own as well.
Apparently he’s had an up and down experience of life as a PK.
The book should be an interesting read.

The Only One Facing As Much Pressure As the Pastor is … The Pastor’s Kid
Dad may be following God’s call, but the Pastor’s kids (PKs) are just following mom and dad. Often to devastating results.
Barnabas Piper – son of Pastor and bestselling author John Piper – has experienced the challenges of being a PK first-hand. With empathy, humor, and personal stories, he addresses the pervasive assumptions, identity issues and accelerated scrutiny PKs face.
But more than just stating the problems – he shares the one thing a PK needs above all else (as do their pastor/father and church) is to live in true freedom and wholeness.
