Item Description...
Overview
An invaluable handbook written by an experienced lawyer for confronting and avoiding the spiritual, emotional, and financial devastation resulting from churches not anticipating the presence of sexual predators in the church. Many flourishing churches have been destroyed by child molestation and the resulting litigation. Unfortunately, sexual predators within the walls of the church are not uncommon. They sit in our pews. They come to our picnics. They even preach from our pulpits and teach in our classes. How can a church protect itself and its children from a very real threat and avoid financial catastrophe brought on by a groundswell of lawsuits? This practical and pertinent book by attorney Voyle Glover cuts to the chase, providing concise, succinct guidelines for protection against sexual predators. Glover's expertise on a wide variety of issues will minimize a church's risk by reducing the opportunities for predators, decreasing liability, and managing the excessive legal exposure. Topics include:?Insurance issues that need to be addressed and understood now.?Is forgiveness an issue when dealing with a repentant child molester? ?Why it is essential to distinguish between restoration, love, and obligations. ?What to do when there is an accusation raised against a church member. ?What about sexual assaults by leadership? ?Guidelines for pastors and other leaders in counseling situations. Includes forms designed to help protect the church.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Very helpful  Dec 14, 2009
I'm a bit mystified by previous low reviews and their take on the message of the book. As someone who is tackling the safety and security issues in my own church, I found this book to be extremely helpful in writing policy and establishing safeguards. Sadly, the author is quite correct when illustrating the often head in the sand attitudes of church staffs/boards today. If you are someone attempting to protect the children in your church, I would highly recommend this book. To clarify legal questions, I would advise as I will do, either talking to the district attorney's office or your church's legal counsel.
 
Poor legal advice, poor documentation, poor presentation  Aug 31, 2009
This book is very poor in it's reasoning, documentation and writing style. One comes away from this with the impression that Mr. Glover is using this his status as an attorney to pound against certain fundamentalist-style churches. Sad that this guy is not spending later years doing something useful and productive.

And, on top of that, Mr. Glover feels the need to highly rate & review his own book here on this site. Isn't the rating system supposed to be for the readers, not the authors?
 
Far better books are available on this subject  Aug 31, 2009
Why would someone purchase this book? Perhaps because they desire to listen to a whiny self-appointed "expert" (with no real credentials in this subject area). All I got out of this book was that right-wing fundamentalist churches exist in order to teach people how to be predators. Uh, yeah, okay, whatever, Mr. Glover.

Sure hope you use better reasoning and actual EVIDENCE in your law practice; you sure didn't in this book.

Waste of time and money.
 
Would you allow a predator to teach your child?  Jan 27, 2009
I'm truly amazed at the lack of safeguards in so many churches today. Many have absolutely no background checks on workers. Few have a real church policy. Plaintiff lawyers will ask some hard questions the day a child is molested while that child was under church care. Did you follow your policy consistently? Was this foreseeable? What training did your workers have? What steps did you take to prevent this? Ignorance will be no excuse in the court room. This book shows the importance of being prepared to have the right answers. Any church member reading this book will never take a child's safety for granted, again. Would God every church member would read this book and press the leadership for a strong child protection policy. It is written in an easy-to-understand style, with forms and resources. How To Protect Your Child from Sexual Predators ought to be a priority. If you think the monsters aren't real, consider the ones interviewed and discussed in Anna Salter's book: Predators: Pedophiles, Rapists, And Other Sex Offenders. This is a very disturbing book that ought to alert every pastor and church member that they absolutely must offer every reasonable safe-guard to the children under their care.
