Margaret has a real gift for taking a life-sustaining "theory" of healthy practice and applying it to real ministry in congregations and organizations. You won't be wondering what this has to do with your actual situation - she's been there and makes the connections.
I particularly appreciate the lists of questions Margaret has created for nearly every chapter. Some are questions I need to be asking myself about my own functioning, while others are questions I need to be asking about the churches I serve. Many can be adapted for use in conversation with parishioners and leaders, and all of them are systems-based and thoughtful. The chapter on understanding money is one of the most helpful treatments I've ever read -- and perhaps the only one I've ever seen from a Family Systems perspective.
