"Dr. Brown's portrait of the dynamics of the problem is insightful and challenging."
--Andrew Greeley, from the Foreword When Ministry Is Messy: Practical Solutions to Difficult Problems
addresses the three major causes of conflict within parish ministry--natural personality differences, emotional illness and sin. With the help of Scripture, namely Matthew 23, and modern psychology, Dr. Brown offers solutions to conflicts so that pastoral ministers can free themselves from fear and anxiety in their daily work and bring peace to church ministries. Drawing from his extensive background in both psychology and ministry, Dr. Brown provides effective solutions that are both practical and spiritual.
