Book Review - Pastor Abusers

Pastor Abusers

When Sheep Attack Their Shepherd
By: Kent Crockett

Book Review

This book was recommended to me by a man who is about 15 years ahead of me in pastoral ministry. I have never been abused during my pastoral ministry; however, I have experienced some abusive treatment that could have developed into formal abuse. Thankfully, the person/people were prevented/stopped in one way or another. I don't think I have read another book that looks honestly at how a pastor can handle abusive treatment; so, that makes me thankful for this book. I'm sure there are others, and I am just not aware of them.

This book is fairly comprehensive and it sites its sources for further study. I think some more attention needs to be given to this topic. In seminary, I don't recall being taught how to have healthy expectations for how a church treats you and what to do about it if you are not being treated properly. Maybe I just have not been paying attention.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.
