Pastoral Politics : Why Pastors Resign



As it turns out this item is temporarily unavailble.

Dr. Gilmore provides honest reflections on the pros and cons of current Protestant church polities. With both humor and honesty, he deals with such manners: when to leave, why one is asked to leave, and why principled-protest resignations are necessary. These bumpy pastoral exits also have both their horror and humor. A key feature of Forced Out is its ability to see good and genuine humor in grueling experiences. Pastoral Politics is not a grudge-book, nor is a payback book for current and past mistreatment. The author does not advise a pastor to quit just because he is facing conflict. The book provides the church board and the pastor valuable insights - theologically, psychologically, and procedurally - enabling pastors and members to be more flexible and charitable. The book is necessary reading for church board members, seminary student with a pastoral calling, and every pastor who has and could face the prospects of moving on.
