While acknowledging the unique aspects of the religious enterprise, Malony's approach is grounded in sound management theory. And it is informed by his many decades of experience as a psychologist working in religious organizations. Filled with the stories, examples, and keen insights of a wise teacher, Living with Paradox promises to take leaders from the "tyranny of the or" to the "genius of the and."
Individuals who are in religious leadership positions will immediately recognize the dilemmas or paradoxes described in this book. The good news is that Malony offers sound practical advice on how to deal with them. This book is accurately descriptive and helpfully prescriptive.
--Douglas Lewis, Wesley Theological Seminary
Malony suggests ways to turn destructive conflict into creative tension. A helpful guide for every religious leader struggling to make sense out of the colliding interests that buffet many congregations and other not-for-profit institutions.
--William E. Hull, Samford University
As a leader you must also challenge individuals to make uncomfortable choices in the service of doing God's work in the world.
Maloney identifies eight central paradoxes that all religious leaders--both lay and ordained--must confront. The author shows how these paradoxes, when viewed as either/or choices or struggled against, can whipsaw the leader, tearing the ministry apart. However, embracing paradox and accepting it as a gift allows religious leaders to deal successfully with conflict in their roles, and in so doing, break through to a more powerful connection with those to whom they minister.
H. Newton Malony is senior professor of psychology at Fuller Theological Seminary, a licensed psychologist, and an ordained United Methodist minister.
