I really adore Elaine as a human and was fortunate to take a class from her at Bethel. I also enjoy her voice as a writer in this book. A great, quick read for those of us in faith communities, especially those in leadership. Elaine uses her "helping" skills to shed light on some of the very real issues of the modern church in a way that challenges us to look at how our actions as part of the larger body affect those around us. Wish she had more books to read!
