"Dr. Brown's portrait of the dynamics of the problem is insightful and challenging."
--Andrew Greeley, from the Foreword

When Ministry Is Messy: Practical Solutions to Difficult Problems addresses the three major causes of conflict within parish ministry--natural personality differences, emotional illness and sin. With the help of Scripture, namely Matthew 23, and modern psychology, Dr. Brown offers solutions to conflicts so that pastoral ministers can free themselves from fear and anxiety in their daily work and bring peace to church ministries. Drawing from his extensive background in both psychology and ministry, Dr. Brown provides effective solutions that are both practical and spiritual.
RICHARD C. BROWN received his Ph.D. in education and master's degrees in counseling and education from Arizona State University, and a master's degree in pastoral theology from the University of San Francisco. He studied Catholic theology at the University of Fribourg, Switzerland, and spiritual director training at Mercy Center, Burlingame, California. He serves as leadership training advisor to four dioceses and is the author of A Practical Guide to Starting an Adult Faith Formation Program (Resource Publications). He resides in Phoenix, Arizona.
