What should happen to pastors who fall to sexual misconduct? Should they return, repentant, to their pulpits within weeks or months - or should they return at all.
Around the world sexual misconduct is knocking ministers from their ministry. As the numbers grow it is crucial to know what should happen to them - for their good and for the good of the Church. Should they return, repentant, to their pulpits within weeks or months - or should they return at all?
"This book is a needed corrective to the growing trend to restore fallen ministers into pastoral leadership. Whether one agrees with all John Armstrong's conclusions, he makes a case that desperately needs to be heard."
"Armstrong has considered the issue in Biblical, theological, and historical terms. He has left no stone unturned and yet he has thrown no stones at fallen brothers. The book reflects a properly pastoral tone and a broken heart."
'As the epidemic of moral failure among church leaders shows signs of worsening, the church must carefully re-examine some hard questions in the clear light of scripture. John Armstrong has done this, and here he offers a thoughtful, biblical response - surely the finest book to date on this difficult subject.'
'The lack of serious self-criticism and sustained biblical analysis on this issue plagues the Christian house. This book by John Armstrong takes a sober look at this problem and endeavours to shake us into something radical - that is to engage the Bible obediently.'
'Eschewing both legalism and apathy, Armstrong points a biblical way forward to protecting God's sheep and recovering fallen shepherds...he has provided us with an extremely valuable, wise and balanced discussion.'
