You have power over the lives of other people--whether it's your children, your spouse, or your co-workers. It's more than government officials, business people, pastors, or other professionals. It is us. Power unchecked can rise up and leave in its wake a flood of broken relationships, ruined reputations, and destroyed lives. What makes ordinary men and women cross the line and misuse authority? Do we purposely set out to abuse our positions of power? How do we get sucked into the power trap? Richard Dortch, former PTL president, has agonized over these questions for the past two years since his release from federal prison. Now for the first time he openly shares the answers--answers he hopes will keep you from falling victim to the subtle pull of power.--from publisher's description.
