Publisher's Description

Every church deals with personality conflicts and intermittent discord. But in some churches, what should be normal clashes has become a devastating form of abuse-pastoral abuse. A growing phenomenon that cuts across denominational lines and impacts every level of ministry, pastoral abuse leaves in its wake thousands of wounded clergymen with ruined ministries, broken relationships, damaged health, even shattered faith.

The Wounded Minister: Healing for Abused Clergy, written by a clinically trained pastoral counselor, examines the reality of evil in churches and the ways in which "pathological antagonists" emotionally and spiritually batter pastors. A deft mix of personal experience and in-depth research, this resource will help wounded men and women of all ministerial positions learn how to recover their broken hearts while rebuilding their lives. And as preventative medicine, it also provides guidelines on how spiritually sensitive Christians can develop a church structure that protects their pastors from this tragedy.

Both compassionate and proactive, this book is an excellent resource for hurting pastors as well as lay leadership pursuing healthy church life.

    Rev. Greenfield's book provided much comfort for those whom were treated unfairly in the church, whether they be pastors or laymen.

    If you are a pastor's wife, I would highly recommend that you buy this book and read it NOW! Then share it with your husband--it will help him more fully understand the spiritual battle he is facing in his congregation and give him tools he can use to cope. Guy Greenfield "hits the nail on the head" from the first page to the last. His description of antagonists in the church is chillingly real and if you haven't encountered them yet, trust me, you will. Read the whole book as the last couple of chapters are an encouragement to the pastors and their families who have been wounded.

    Greenfield here addresses clergy causalities and ministerial mistreatment by churches. His depth and breadth are more extensive than any author I have read previously. This work is divided into three sections: the reality of church abuse, ministers whose personalities and/or disorders bring pain upon themselves, and ways to recover and to heal.For me as a pastor, the best portions of the book were the last two sections. Most ministers are aware of the horror stories of clergy being abused by their churches, but far less are aware of traits in their own lives that increase the probability of injury. Also, few ministers who are wounded are aware of the many ways that healing and recovery can occur.This volume is a must-read for any pastor or associate pastor. If he hasn't experienced yet the heartache of ministry, I am convinced it is not matter of when it comes, but how intensely it comes. This book will help a minister in caring for himself and in supporting colleagues who have been wounded in their service.

    This book was like reading my own experience in the pastorate. Dr. Greenfield accurately identifies the problem in many churches today--clergy killers. This phenomenon is very real and very devastating. After 2 years of antagonism in a 3-year pastorate, I am still here, and still breathing! This book should be a must-read for ministerial students, as most come out of school with optimism to spare. It gives a realistic approach on how to set up barriers of protection for pastors and consequently laymen.My only wish is that Dr. Greenfield addressed what to do when you're in the midst of the fray, as most pastors he profiled simply resigned or were fired. I have no intention of leaving the helm unless God moves me Himself.
