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.

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.

Pastoral Ethics Jan. 8 2014
By Sue - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Joe Trull and James Carter have written a go to Ethics book for church leaders. Let me begin by saying that I believe pasturing is the toughest job a man is called to do. Every church leader should read this book to assist your pastor. The core of "Ministerial Ethics" deals with the major issues of : Vocation, Moral Choices, Personal Life, Congregation, Community and Ethics.
The best and most practical part of the book is the Appendix. Here are the appendix titles - "A Procedure for Responding to Charges of Clergy Sexual Abuse...Early Denominational Codes...Contemporary Denominational Codes...Ministerial and Parachurch Groups Codes...Sample Codes of Ethics."
"Ministerial Ethics" provides the framework to set up your organizational in time proven ways. The book is easy to read and not as dry as my review makes it seem. It is worth the investment.
Good Material but Dry Nov. 26 2012
By J. Ruis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I had to read this book for a Ministerial Ethics class I took this fall. I found the information in this book helpful but the author could have done a better job presenting the material. There was a lot of repetition in every chapter and at times it felt like he was trying to fill space.

All in all it is a good read for anyone who is going into ministry. It gives you a good framework to work through you own Ministerial Code of Ethics and helps you think through various scenarios that you may encounter. Just don't expect the reading to be too exciting.
