Review: The Wounded Minister: Healing from and Preventing Personal AttacksUser Review - Christianbook.com
Greenfield here addresses clergy causalities and ministerial mistreatment by churches. His depth and breadth are more extensive than any author I have read previously. This work is divided into three sections: the reality of church abuse, ministers whose personalities and/or disorders bring pain upon themselves, and ways to recover and to heal.For me as a pastor, the best portions of the book were the last two sections. Most ministers are aware of the horror stories of clergy being abused by their churches, but far less are aware of traits in their own lives that increase the probability of injury. Also, few ministers who are wounded are aware of the many ways that healing and recovery can occur.This volume is a must-read for any pastor or associate pastor. If he hasn't experienced yet the heartache of ministry, I am convinced it is not matter of when it comes, but how intensely it comes. This book will help a minister in caring for himself and in supporting colleagues who have been wounded in their service.
