CARE OF TROUBLESOME PEOPLE, THE by Wayne E. Oates
Combines family systems theory, analysis of five types of behavior that often create conflict, and biblically based approaches for dealing with such behavior. Rather than fix blame or characterize people as bad or evil (which can serve to create more turmoil), Oates proposes a method that focuses not just on the battles, but on issues of wholeness and care for the individual, ourselves, and the church. A valuable companion to How Your Church Family Works.
