Reviews - What do customers think about The Christian Handbook for Pastors (Facets)?

NOT The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook: Pastoring  Oct 14, 2006
But that wouldn't be a bad guess because editor Kristofer Skrade clearly grasps the basic premise of that wildly successful series: combine useful advice with good humor and attractive illustrations, which are in fact provided by the very same artist, Brenda Brown. (The title page specifically states that it is "based on the trade dress" of the more famous series which is "used with permission of and under license from" that series' publisher.)

Thus good common sense tips on how to run a church are combined with illustrated tips on how to drink coffee with members of your flock (always remember that drinking coffee is NOT your primary purpose here) and how to accept cookies and other goodies graciously without gaining weight.

I knocked off a star because in a couple of places the book seems to be suggesting that a pastor lie: not the so-called "white lie" where telling the brutal truth is arguably the more sinful course but actually lying to escape responsibility for one's actions. Perhaps this was a deliberate attempt to provoke the opposite reaction that it did in me, but I don't think it is ever a good idea to encourage pastors to lie, even in jest. There is quite enough encouragement of that from other sources.

Note: this is essentially The Lutheran Handbook for Pastors with the Lutheran specific material removed. Thus Lutherans might prefer their specific version. Scripture quotations are from the NIV. The other books in this series are The Christian Handbook: An Indispensable Guide to All Things Christian and The Christian Handbook on Marriage.
