Reviews - What do our customers think?
Disappointing  Nov 13, 2002
I purchased this book while researching resources for a class I will be teaching for a group of ministerial students on Balance and Vitality in the MInistry. The work sounded intriguing and I began reading it the day it arrived. But although the premise is interesting, I didn't feel the author really deleved into what he promised. The book left me with the feeling that ministers need to be aware of the dangers of burnout, without offering any real solutions or preventative skills to build. (We're already aware of this, I think.) The section on the Inneagram was sketchy and more anecdotal than helpful in describing the types in terms of ministry, their strong suits, and their weaknesses. It was a few paragraphs to a couple pages for each, pretty much listing the above. Clearly the author feels it's a time for healing. (I agree with him.) But once he makes this point he doesn't offer what I was looking for in the way of addressing the problem preventatively.
Understanding the sacred soul  Aug 12, 2000
I enjoyed this book because I gained insight into what really "goes on" in the ministry. The shadow side of this profession is real and awareness of it is healthy. With Christ, I want to understand the pastors that I have had the privelage to love and respect. The pressures endured are unimaginable, I'm sure. How can a human remain passionate and pure,whole and holy,sacred and sane? Is God's grace sufficient? The Bible says that it is. If life is ministry for those who attempt to follow Jesus, then the struggles are common to us all, but especially intense for those called by God into public ministry. A TIME FOR HEALING is a book for anyone longing to understand themselves and others within their church family. I recommend it for those sensing God's call to ministry within the helping professions, pastors, their spouses,friends, as well as members of a congregation who are compelled to nurture and/or enable those in leadership positions. With characteristic transparency, Seymour uses biblical characters as models to address and understand the perils prevalent in ministry. Topics such as sexual misconduct, ambition, burnout, and the need to be "held" through the lonliness of spiritual dryness are confronted with courage and compassion. Using the Enneagram as a tool for self-awareness and a 21 day renewal program, this book is an insightful guide toward healing the sacred soul. Seymour exposes the high-risk nature of pastoral work, the demons that are "out there", the need for high standards and accountability. With God's help,awareness and acceptance, these perils can hopefully be overcome.
