Reviews - What do customers think about Serving By Safeguarding Your Church?
Better than nothing? I don't think so. Apr 28, 2008
Brief, general overview that misses too much. A book that seems to fill a slot in a list of books on various topics, but has virtually no relevant content to justify being written. This book is even worse than a similar volume on church security I threw money away on that also has a lock on it.
Out of touch with security issues, today, such as responding to shooters, terrorists, physically violent people, attacks on pastors, and lacks any specific information that I could recommend or implement. Reads like it was written by a security layman with a lawyer looking over his shoulder, making sure he didn't say anything of substance.
I know this is a bad review, but I utterly wasted my money and my time with this book.
You want church security? Hire a firm that specializes in it, or a couple off-duty cops to teach your staff and ushers.
