Life in a Glass House: The Minister's Family and the Local Congregation
It is common knowledge that the minister’s family faces unusual challenges and expectations. Why is this so? What’s so different about a minister’s family? As Cameron Lee and jack Balswick point out, it is not so much that pastor’s families are different from other families. It is their social context, living under the scrutiny of the larger church ‘family,’ that makes all the difference. This book addresses the dynamics of clergy life and helps people to understand the stresses that often arise in the parish.
