Item description for Church on the Couch: Does the Church Need Therapy? by Elaine Martens Hamilton...

Here is practical guidance for church leaders who desire to free their people from the grip of inauthenticity, which hinders spiritual and emotional growth and maturity. It is a challenge to live differently by telling the truth about who you are, and to provide opportunities for others to do the same.

Publishers Description
Though most church leaders crave authenticity in their congregations, most also know it is an elusive goal. People by nature are self-protective. And although the gospel message that we are all sinners saved by grace ought to make people more real, the truth is many of our churches are plagued by fakeness. This inauthenticity hinders spiritual and emotional health and maturity. So what s a church leader to do? The key, says Elaine Hamilton, is to go beyond talking about doing things differently. We have to act and live differently. It begins with leaders; the people will follow. We need to tell the truth about who we really are, and then provide forums for others to do the same. Church on the Couch helps you take practical steps toward changing the culture of your church. As the masks come off, the healing and growth will begin."

Reviews - What do customers think about Church On The Couch?

Finally authenticity!  Apr 29, 2009
Hamilton's analysis of the lack of authenticity in churches today provides the reader with practical solutions in remedying the lack of genuineness in doing church. So many parishoners today are disheartened by the lack of "realness" in church today. While not all churches fall under this umbrella, Hamilton provides specific practical solutions for those churches that need a fresh start in the area of authenticity. It starts with leadership. I am curious to see what pastor's responses will be to this book.
