Reviews - What do our customers think?
Attempting a Biblical Theology of Administration  Feb 6, 2007
There are two problems with most Church Administration books: 1) As soon as they get specific with business practice they become irrelevant for those who live in a different business or legal climate (i.e. all those outside of the USA); 2) They often try to justify every single administrative or business practice undertaken by the Church with a biblical example. This leads to horrendous 'proof-texting' and shaky theology.

Unfortunately, this book succumbs to both of these issues. Proofs texts are often utilised which more often than not are subjected to an eisogetic allegorical hermeneutic. With this flawed hermeneutic God's great act of intervention and deliverance in the exodus of Israel from Egypt is reduced to an example of business planning (pg 15), the Holy Spirit is a supervisor in the divine 'reporting system' (p29), and the prophets are feedback agents (p29). The frequent misuse of passages referring to the 'administration' of grace or spiritual gifts (1 Pet. 4:10; Eph. 3:2, 9 [as though these verses were 'really' about business administration]) demonstrates a suprising lack of linguistic and hermeneutical ability on the part of the authors.

In this reviewer's opinion, it seems that books such as this would be served better by building their adminstrative practices on a simple basis of stewardship rather than trying to force the Bible to mandate every single contemporary business practice. The writers should stick with their gifts (administration) and leave the biblical scholarship to someone more qualified.

However, once one skims over these painful sections and gets to what the book is really supposed to be about (administration and not biblical theology) it is fairly solid. My main criticism is that it is a little too focused on the specifics of the American church.
Management Essentials...a huge help for me.  Sep 9, 2005
I was specifically looking for a book that would help me organize the plans I had for the new Dance Ministry I started at my church. I wanted a book that understood how the unique business of a church runs and would help me organize and present my ideas to my pastor. This book is more than perfect. It seems to be written for people just like me. I recommend it for anyone starting a new ministry, or just looking for a way to organize or maintain an existing ministry.
The product was perfect and i love it   Aug 18, 2005
