Never Call Them Jerks

Healthy Responses to Difficult Behavior
  • By Arthur Paul Boers
Product Description
In this thoughtful analysis of difficult behavior in congregations, Arthur Paul Boers leads readers beyond the negative labeling of people into self-care, understanding, and healing.

No church is immune to the problems that can arise when parishioners behave in difficult ways. Responding to such situations with self-awareness and in a manner true to one’s faith tradition makes the difference between peace and disaster. In this must-read book, Boers shows how a better understanding of difficult behavior can help congregational leaders avoid the trap of labeling such parishioners and exercise self-care when the going gets rough.

Foreword by David W. Augsburger, author of Conflict Mediation across Cultures.
