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.
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.
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.
