    Richardson's excellent work is invaluable to not only Pastors of local congregations but to church lay leaders as well. It is well written and easy to read for church leaders. I am glad to refer this work to others.

    After speaking with a friend about systems theory and its relation to churches, I decided to buy this book. Pastors who have no understanding of this topic need to read this work, which provides a good summary of how systems function within congregation. I have observed the dynamics of closeness/distance, triangles, and anxiety levels for years in churches, but now am able to understand them much better.I recommend this title highly as a good summary and overview of systems theory as it applies to churches. The knowledge gained is well-worth the price of the book!
