One Comment to Antagonists in the Church

  1. Kenneth C. Haugk Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the Antagonists in the Church book, this is one of the most wanted Kenneth C. Haugk author readers around the world.

  2. I found this book quite helpful I was nice to give language to particular behaviors, gather helpful response techniques, and especially not feel so crazy about things I have experienced observed I am intrigued by the idea of a up to date, similar book being written which connects these behaviors to the use of technology and social media I can only hope someone might be working on that somewhere.


  3. We assume that people in our congregations come into community to try and be our best selves together, and it can be jarring when that sometimes doesn t appear to be the case In fact, it is often not the case As this book describes, religious community can be a magnet for bad behavior because such behavior is often tolerated, in the name of peace and love, rather than confronted.I first read this book as a lay leader, and it immediately helped me and the leadership group I was working with bette [...]


  4. Haugk described how to identify antagonists well, but his suggestions for working with handling antagonists fell short Shelley s Well Intentioned Dragons handled that aspect better than Haugk did here.


  5. Section on identifying antagonists is helpful, but seems a little weak Sections addressing how to handle an antagonist from beginning to end are excellent Very good book for church leaders.





  6. I m not sure that I have encountered the type of antagonism Haugk describes, still, I wish I had read this book earlier in my ministry career Haugk has given a great gift to Christian community with this writing With the decline of cultural Christianity in the last 25 years, one wonders if the type of antagonism Haugk describes has diminished in the church Regardless, this is a helpful read for clergy and all church leaders who are experiencing the frustration and fear that comes with dealing wi [...]


  7. This book helps you identify, deter, and overcome antagonists while protecting yourself and your ministry Antagonist is used as a technical term to describe someone with likely psychological issues that make them unable to reason when they are in antagonist mode The book teaches methods on how to overcome their unreasonableness, mitigate their damage to the community, put a stop to the attacks, and get on with your life.


  8. This book comprehensively defines this issue and offers tested wisdom and practice advice for biblically dealing with antagonism in the church I hope I never need to deal with this in its full blown state, but now I feel equipped to do so should the need arise, and I know how to spot the warning signs and put safeguards in place This should be on every church leader s staff and volunteer book shelf.


  9. Even though this book is written from a Christian perspective, I believe it would be very helpful for anyone in a religious, charitable or fraternal order It clearly explains who to identify antagonists and how to deal with them If people paid attention so this sort of advice there would be less people for antagonists to prey on out there.


  10. This book was recommended to me by my pastor, when I told him I was going to the seminary I recommend it for the same reasons he did Hopefully you ll never have to deal with this kind of problem, but if you do, this is a first rate book.


  11. Describes how there are some people in some congregations who just want to stir up trouble and there s nothing you can do to satisfy them It gives clues of what to look for so you can spot these people and gives guidelines for how to handle them so that they don t do permanent damage.


  12. This book can be dangerous as some pastors might wish to make every disagreeable person an antagonist Haugk demonstrates a Christian way to deal with people who make not only a pastor s life but other Christians lives miserable Highly recommended.


  13. As the name suggests, this book is a bit of a manual The advice is really quite good, and the book takes good Christian stances on the issues at stake Very helpful.




  14. Excellent help for pastors and anyone involved in church life Gives guidelines for determining when enough is really enough.



  15. A friend recommended that I get this book and read it Useful book for a church leader who is dealing with trouble makers in the church.



  16. Another must read for church workers, because we are as imperfect as those we serve and yet God loves us anyway
