Reviews - What do our customers think?
Practical and Clear  Feb 11, 2008
Using case studies, current events, and surveys from ministers, the authors identify the questions, issues, joys, and dangers related to pastors' sexuality and their professional role. A very clearly written book that helps frame the questions and point us toward the answers. Key points include (1) the power differential between pastor and congregant, which makes consent usually impossible; and (2) the cultural background that supports sexism, relationship addictions, and heterosexism and makes this more than simply a question of the pastor's personal responsibility. An excellent and interesting read.
 
Secular Book, Not Theological  Nov 4, 2006
Don't be fooled by the title that includes the word "Parish." This book looks at sexual issues from a secular / liberal perspective. The writer uses no theological or biblical basis for her conclusions. If you are looking for a standard liberal book on sexual issues in the work place base (and the work place just happens to be the church), this is your book. If you are looking for a deeper theological perspective, this is not your book.
