Item description for Pastoral Politics: Why Ministers Resign by John Gilmore...

Overview
Dr. Gilmore provides honest reflections on the pros and cons of current Protestant church polities. With both humor and honesty, he deals with such manners: when to leave, why one is asked to leave, and why principled-protest resignations are necessary. These bumpy pastoral exits also have both their horror and humor. A key feature of Forced Out is its ability to see good and genuine humor in grueling experiences. Pastoral Politics is not a grudge-book, nor is a payback book for current and past mistreatment. The author does not advise a pastor to quit just because he is facing conflict. The book provides the church board and the pastor valuable insights - theologically, psychologically, and procedurally - enabling pastors and members to be more flexible and charitable. The book is necessary reading for church board members, seminary student with a pastoral calling, and every pastor who has and could face the prospects of moving on.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pastoral Politics: Why Ministers Resign?

Truth finally out  Jan 10, 2003
Pastoral politics pulls back the sheet on church cover-ups.....of why their preacher left. Too long now pious talk has obscured why preachers really leave their pastorates. This book has done what others failed to do--i.e. to get to the bottom of what goes on behind church board doors. It is constructive despite the fact it uncovers grizzly negativity. It provides a history of clerical closures minus those detailed sleeze cases in the secular presses. It provides a good background in dealing with pastor/people conflicts because it explains, historicallly and spiritually, where the rubs develop and how a little ointment can get the machinery running again without damage. It is a fast and interesting read on top of that. A book to be read and shared.
