  • Summary:

    “You have heard it said, ‘A method tried and true is like fine gold.’ But I say unto you, ‘A method that worked before is a heavy burden. Try something different!’ You have heard it said, ‘Do not make molehills out of mountains.’ But I also say unto you, ‘Do not make molehills out of mountains.’

    If these sayings intrigue you, you will want to read and apply the lessions of this absorbing, practical, and inspirational book in which Kenneth Halstead joins the strategic methods of paradoxical therapy to typical congregational impasses. The result is fresh, innovative insights for avoiding turning inevitable difficulties into intractable problems. A trustworthy guidebook for congregational problem solving, it will save many a threatened pastor from needless frustration and unmerited failure.”
