Later in the book, however, he talks about specific problems. For example, what do you do about a church that tries so hard to be nice that it doesn't confront damaging behavior when it does occur? Or how do you bring someone back into covenant when they are hurting others? There were enough short case studies and specifics in the book to make it worthwhile. I am glad I read it, and that I stuck out the general admonitions about labelling people.
