Item Description...
There is no question that pastors are under great stress today. Difficulties tear at the heart of the pastor but are often hidden from the view of the congregation.Kenneth Swetland presents a compelling look at this hidden world through true stories from pastors of different ages and from different parts of the country, various denominations, and diverse backgrounds. Meet Pete, Dirk, Norm, Ted, and others who face such problems as depression, sexual sin, family concerns, friction in staff relationships, gender and leadership conflicts, debt, and divorce.The thirteen case studies can be read alone or used by groups of pastors and/or students for discussion. Reading and discussing the case studies will give insight into the pastor's own problems. Having worked through their own concerns, they will be better equipped to minister to others. Laypeople would also benefit from reading the cases to gain deeper understanding of the world of pastoring and to learn when to offer support and counsel to their own pastors.'The Hidden World of the Pastor' includes bibliographic entries as well as an appendix on how to teach a case study.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Must-read for anyone considering or already in the pastorate  Jan 27, 2008
As a seminary student, I found Swetland's book invaluable for helping consider the potential issues I will be facing when I go into ministry. The variety and range of stories keep the reading from being redundant. Indeed, some of the stories are so striking, they really causes one to sit back and think hard about the serious and difficult task of American pastors.
Swetland's First Book of Case Studies  May 10, 2006
As a student of Ken Swetland's, I was very interested in reading this book and his most recent release. The case studies in this easy-to-read collection will be very helpful for young pastors, seminarians, and their spouses, as they ponder the future difficulties that they might face in ministry. Swetland has been very careful to frame these stories in ways to prompt you toward in-depth thinking and self-searching. This is a quick read, which will prompt you to slow, careful thought.
