Item description for Shepherding the Shepherd by Richard W. Roukema...

Overview
Describes the many stresses in minstry that can be prevented and overcome. Shepherding The Shepherd is a reader-friendly review of the potential problems that face all members of the clergy. The book identifies the stresses that occur in ministry and suggests ways to avoid stumbling blocks or deal with them if they occur. Common problems of excessive work, neglecting family, and ignoring personal needs are discussed. Issues of helping too much (enabling), rescue fantasies, transference, the changing role of ministry, and expectations of clergy family members are detailed with examples of how these play out in the pastor's life. The prevalence, prevention, and control of Internet pornography are described. Problems with church boards and the important ramifications of burnout are reviewed. Many interesting examples are provided of clergy who have faced these obstacles and overcome them. This is a must-read book for every pastor as well as for clergy who had been working in the field for some time. It would serve as an excellent textbook for courses for those preparing for work in ministry or for in-service training.
