Book Description

March 1 2004
Ministerial Ethics provides both new and experienced pastors with tools for sharpening their personal and professional decision-making skills. The authors seek to explain the unique moral role of the minister and the ethical responsibilities of the vocation and to provide "a clear statement of the ethical obligations contemporary clergy should assume in their personal and professional lives." Trull and Carter deal with such areas as family life, confidentiality, truth-telling, political involvement, working with committees, and relating to other church staff members.

First published in 1993, this edition has been thoroughly updated throughout and contains expanded sections on theological foundations, the role of character, confidentiality, and the timely topic of clergy sexual abuse. Appendices describing various denominational ministerial codes of ethics are included.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Should be required reading for ministers of all levels Feb. 28 2008
By J. A. Wrape - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book excellently describes ethics in decision making and reveals ethical principles in the Bible that every minister of any degree should be required to read. I read this due to a class required by the North Carolina District of the Assemblies of God and have heard from several senior pastors that the guidance found in this book would save many a pastor from making ignorant mistakes in leadership.
Why is this needed for Christian leaders who should be moral already? Because this book reveals that people with good morals can be ignorant of unethical behavior which effects their leadership and those who follow them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Informative but redundant Feb. 23 2009
By Batesville Music Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I purchased this book for a ministerial creditial class I am taking. The book had many good points and was very informative on the subject matter. However, I found the authors' writing to be very redundant. The authors chose to say the same thing multiple multiple times in order to make their point. I would had rather had them to just get straight to the point. The book served the purpose for which I purchased it and I would recommend it, if this is the book that your course requires. I would not have purchased it otherwise.

We used this book for a class and it was well-written, easy to follow and discussed topics that many are afraid to address.
