    1. Nathan Willard says:

      A good selection of case studies about pastors and staffed forced from church by toxic personalities. Good for laying out he warning signs, and good for sharing with people who may be naive about church dynamics. A little thin on pastoral responsibility. I particularly like the repeated emphasis on systems of support and on the importance of non-triangulation.

    2. Greg says:

      Who would think that confrontation and politics could wreck a church parish, but this book has ample evidence that it occurs. A well written study that explains how a minority can destroy the ministry of the best people. It also gives great suggestions on how to nip these problems in the bud. Great reading for Vestry or Parish Council members.

    3. Leo says:

      This book really puts parish life into perspective. While the examples are Episcopal priests there are a lot of similarities to Roman Catholic parishes.

    4. Joy Gonnerman says:

      every pastor needs to read this book. It puts a humorous tone on what can make a person question their call to serve in pastoral ministry. I'm still in the work.
