This book gives you exactly what it advertises: a study on the different types and temperaments in religious leadership. It gives you insight to your approach in the ministry and to spirituality, and also will point out some pitfalls: including common heresies of this type and how some types have a natural propensity for clergy/parishioner relations. They also will point out the many conflicts that can happen between types, that sometimes can simply solved by viewing the difference.
This is one of those books you can jump around to whichever section you need, as long as you have a basic understanding of the types. If not, I recommend reading the first few chapters as you start.
Worth every cent of the purchase.
