Many pastors have relinquished their hope for true relationships in their congregations, instead just settling for surviving. Some pastors expect their churches to be embroiled in petty controversies or vicious conflicts. Others have left the ministry. Many disputes that divide churches are related to the unrecognized dynamics of transference, the confusing effect of a person transferring unresolved memories and feelings from the past to someone in the present. This book contains helpful anecdotes that illustrate the clearly defined terms and concepts.
