Reviews - What do customers think about Emergency Response Handbook For Small Group Leader?

very helpful...I just wish...  Sep 26, 2008
This is a very helpful book of case studies and advice in what to do when various crisies hit a small group situation. I picked up a copy at the recommendation of a mentor after facing a tough situation in my own group.

Several topics are dealt with in depth. Practical wisdom is given. The issue of when to seek greater help is dealt with as well.

I just wish this book covered two additional topics, which in my experience at least, come up from time to time in group life: adultery and financial problems. These seem like two somewhat common and thorny problems to exclude from this book.

Overall--though it is a short book that does cover ALL the topics one might want--I give the emergency handbook a strong recommendation to fellow small group leaders.

There will come a time where you need a book like this!
A MUST HAVE resource for Ministry!  Mar 9, 2008
This book is a must have for anyone in ministry! It is a small book, an easy read, and full of very valuable information for your needs in ministry! In it you are given topics of concern (ie: divorce, terminal illness, depression, death, rebellious child, unemployment, addiction, and more!), a way to help counsel your child/family, and even "what NOT to say".....
I find that it is a resource that is the first one I grab when issues arise that I need wisdom and advice myself....
I am certain that it should be part of every ministry worker/leader's library!
In fact, the entire selection/library is a must have!
A Must for All Leaders!  Jul 13, 2007
Just the introduction to this book grabbed me, and I was excited to find a resources that really equips people to help one another through the trials of life! I agree with the person who reviewed this book prior to me...I am going to purchase one for EACH of my small group leaders and coaches as well as ministry team leaders...Christmas shopping done! With sound counseling tips, great online resources, lists of what to say AND (perhaps more important) what NOT to say, this book is PACKED with practical advice!
Patrick Wilson  Apr 25, 2007
A great little book. Very practical. I am buying it for all my small group leaders. The book is so user friendly that begs to be used. The info is also very current and has books and on-line resources for follow-up help. I would highly recommend the book for anyone working with small groups.
