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