Recently published, this outstanding resource explores appropriate boundaries in ministry, boundaries that “promote and contribute to health. . .and excellence in ministry,” that is, the health and well-being of both the minister and his family as well as that of the community. The authors contend that “successful boundaries are a team effort,” involving both the clergy and the community of faith. This book is an important read for priests, presvyteres and leaders in our parishes.
