Reviews - What do customers think about When People Throw Stones: A Leader's Guide to Fielding Personal Criticism?

At the right time  Feb 1, 2006
I found this book in fall 2005 just at the right time as 2004-2005 were years of challenges and criticisms for our church and our pastors. I gave copies to our pastors in hope they would find the contents helpful, enlightening and comforting. I'm also sharing it with my fellow colleagues in the ministry area we serve as church secretaries and administrative assistants in hopes they too will find a new perspective in dealing with the challenges and criticisms of being in ministry.
 
Finally, a book that speaks to my heart and head!  Aug 20, 2005
I've read other books on how to deal with criticism in the church but this one is different. The writing is personal and speaks to my heart - not just my intellect.

Though you can read the book in one sitting, I find the chapters are best read for specific situations. The first chapters are in response to current hurt from criticism. Other chapters help walk the reader through how to forgive and how to respond when you know the criticism is valid.

The extensive use of scripture helped me view the situation from God's perspective - beyond "he said, she said".

This book has helped me turn a corner whereas other books on this topic focused more on the "why" people criticise then the "how" to move on.
