Item Description...
Overview
Dr. Gilmore provides honest reflections on the pros and cons of current Protestant church polities. With both humor and honesty, he deals with such manners: when to leave, why one is asked to leave, and why principled-protest resignations are necessary. These bumpy pastoral exits also have both their horror and humor. A key feature of Forced Out is its ability to see good and genuine humor in grueling experiences. Pastoral Politics is not a grudge-book, nor is a payback book for current and past mistreatment. The author does not advise a pastor to quit just because he is facing conflict. The book provides the church board and the pastor valuable insights - theologically, psychologically, and procedurally - enabling pastors and members to be more flexible and charitable. The book is necessary reading for church board members, seminary student with a pastoral calling, and every pastor who has and could face the prospects of moving on.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Truth finally out  Jan 10, 2003
Pastoral politics pulls back the sheet on church cover-ups.....of why their preacher left. Too long now pious talk has obscured why preachers really leave their pastorates. This book has done what others failed to do--i.e. to get to the bottom of what goes on behind church board doors. It is constructive despite the fact it uncovers grizzly negativity. It provides a history of clerical closures minus those detailed sleeze cases in the secular presses. It provides a good background in dealing with pastor/people conflicts because it explains, historicallly and spiritually, where the rubs develop and how a little ointment can get the machinery running again without damage. It is a fast and interesting read on top of that. A book to be read and shared.
