I get the strange feeling that everyone is expecting me to say that my favorite non-fiction book is The Bible, and while it’s a great one, I have another current favorite to share.
We just finished reading this book for our Group Process & Leadership Skills class, and I absolutely love it. It’s a great book for helping the Pastor and leader understand the stages of grief and loss that come with change in a congregation. Author Ken McFayden has tied the stages of grief to his extensive studies of attachment theories, which really help to explain the depths of grief that are possible. It’s a great book for use outside of the church as well, if you’re looking for a good read in lay-terms about change and adaptation. Plus, the author’s a pretty cool guy to come teach a class, too!
