Item description for Ministerial Ethics And Etiquette by Nolan Harmon...
Overview A classic guide to ethics since 1928. Nolan Harmon studied the ethical codes of conduct of five major denominations and secured the opinions of eighty-six leading pastors. Harmon uses this wisdom to show ministers how to conduct themselves ethically in virtually every phase of ministry, including special occasion rituals.
Community Description The author argues that in an age lacking in civility---when people, customs, and institutions are frequently treated disrespectfully---clergy are expected to model an ethic and an etiquette that honors God, the church, their profession, and themselves.
Nolan B. Harman, who authored several editions of this book since it first appeared in 1928, studied the ethical conduct codes of five major denominations and secured the expert opinions of eighty-six leading pastors. Noting that dignified, civil conduct is always required of those who would be good pastors, Harman helps ministers conduct themselves ethically and appropriately in virtually every phase of ministry.
This book offers timeless advice to clergy on a full range of ministerial duties---from visiting the sick, to respectful treatment of the opposite sex, to the proper leadership of worship.
