it was ok
Read from June 15 to August 24, 2011

This is mainly for church leaders, and advocates, as it says a number of times, a "Copernican revolution" in the way church leadership is handled (this is evidence of the shaky use of terminology throughout- really, a "Copernican revolution"?). The whole theoretical beginning of the book is suspect for me: it all hinges on the idea that "one cannot be spiritually mature without being emotionally mature." (The converse is clearly untrue, yes? Also, there is a good deal of discussion about the spiritual as distinct from the intellectual and the like, but this is a clear fallacy, I think: the angels are described as being "pure intellegences," and are yet spirits... but I digress.) The practical tips at the end of the book seem solid.
