Item Description...
Overview
This book offers lifelines for pastors serving toxic and dysfunctional congregations.

A culture of triage engulfs mainstream religion in America. More and more churches are either toxic or dysfunctional. These churches contribute to the chronic decline of membership and burnout of clergy. Such churches cannot be "fixed" by even sincere or competent pastors without listening to God's guidance, insightful diagnosis, healing and conversion, revision, and supportive attention. Pastors did not sign on for this kind of ministry, but growing numbers find themselves in the throes of a life and death struggle for the soul of their church. This book will offer the vision, dynamics, and programming necessary for regenerating impaired congregations.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Seminary Material  Feb 14, 2008
This remarkable book is self-validating. It's accurate categorization of contemporary congregations provides prescriptions for malfunctioning and energizing stimuli for paradigmatic congregations. The emphasis on finding and nurturing the "soul" of a congregation is insightful.
The author steers clear of leadership cliches as he offers timely guidelines for pastoring today. Yet it is likely that the most enduring contribution of this volume is the ten point "Grievance-Suggestion Procedure" designed to help immunize a congregation from abusive conflict. This book is generative.

 
Lame plus self-promoting  Sep 15, 2007
The author attempts to use contemporary physics and medical ideas to communicate deep, new truths. The ideas, however, are shallow and wholly unnecessary to-be-printed. The physics/medical metaphors are 100% worthless and either distract from the idea or prove, ironically, the authors ignorance.
- His assessment of post-modernity is just silly.
- His 4 types of churches (toxic, dysfunctional, normal, paradigmatic) actually collapses into 2, maybe 3, types of churches.
- He references his other writings with blatant "go buy/read them" verbiage. Why?!? If they are as lame as this one . . .

Don't even bother reading it, much less buying it. Not even worth the effort of getting it from the library.
