PERILS OF POWER
IMMORALITY IN THE MINISTRY
In Perils of Power, Richard Exley takes an in-depth look at immorality in the ministry. It's a complex issue involving the minister's relationship with money, sex and power. There are many factors at work including the minister's self-image and sexual identity, his life-style, his marital relationship, his way he views power and even how he conducts his ministry. Immorality is seldom just a "sexual sin" and while it is definitely a spiritual problem, it is more just a "spiritual problem."
Perils of Power looks beneath the obvious sin of highly visible ministers in an attempt to understand the interpersonal dynamics of moral failure among those who recognize it as a deadly sin. Once Dr. Exley has identified the spiritual and emotional dynamics that are at work; he offers scriptural insights and practical strategies for overcoming the temptations we all face.
