Dr. Gilmore deals with thorny subjects concerning when ministers should leave and when”principled-protest resignations” are necessary. A key feature of Pastoral Politics is its ability to see good and genuine humor in grueling experiences.
Pastoral Politics is not a grudge-book, nor is it a payback book for current and past mistreatment. The book provides the church board and the pastor valuable insights-theologically, psychologically and procedurally-enabling pastors and members to be more flexible and charitable. The book is necessary reading for church board members, seminary students and every pastor who has and could face the prospects of moving on.
