Reviews - What do customers think about Protecting Your Church Against Sexual Predators: Legal FAQs for Church Leaders?

Very helpful  Dec 14, 2009
I'm a bit mystified by previous low reviews and their take on the message of the book. As someone who is tackling the safety and security issues in my own church, I found this book to be extremely helpful in writing policy and establishing safeguards. Sadly, the author is quite correct when illustrating the often head in the sand attitudes of church staffs/boards today. If you are someone attempting to protect the children in your church, I would highly recommend this book. To clarify legal questions, I would advise as I will do, either talking to the district attorney's office or your church's legal counsel.
 
Poor legal advice, poor documentation, poor presentation  Aug 31, 2009
This book is very poor in it's reasoning, documentation and writing style. One comes away from this with the impression that Mr. Glover is using this his status as an attorney to pound against certain fundamentalist-style churches. Sad that this guy is not spending later years doing something useful and productive.

And, on top of that, Mr. Glover feels the need to highly rate & review his own book here on this site. Isn't the rating system supposed to be for the readers, not the authors?
 
Far better books are available on this subject  Aug 31, 2009
Why would someone purchase this book? Perhaps because they desire to listen to a whiny self-appointed "expert" (with no real credentials in this subject area). All I got out of this book was that right-wing fundamentalist churches exist in order to teach people how to be predators. Uh, yeah, okay, whatever, Mr. Glover.

Sure hope you use better reasoning and actual EVIDENCE in your law practice; you sure didn't in this book.

Waste of time and money.
 
Would you allow a predator to teach your child?  Jan 27, 2009
I'm truly amazed at the lack of safeguards in so many churches today. Many have absolutely no background checks on workers. Few have a real church policy. Plaintiff lawyers will ask some hard questions the day a child is molested while that child was under church care. Did you follow your policy consistently? Was this foreseeable? What training did your workers have? What steps did you take to prevent this? Ignorance will be no excuse in the court room. This book shows the importance of being prepared to have the right answers. Any church member reading this book will never take a child's safety for granted, again. Would God every church member would read this book and press the leadership for a strong child protection policy. It is written in an easy-to-understand style, with forms and resources. How To Protect Your Child from Sexual Predators ought to be a priority. If you think the monsters aren't real, consider the ones interviewed and discussed in Anna Salter's book: Predators: Pedophiles, Rapists, And Other Sex Offenders. This is a very disturbing book that ought to alert every pastor and church member that they absolutely must offer every reasonable safe-guard to the children under their care.
