"Any pastor or church leader who follows the advice in this book will dramatically lower his personal and corporate liability in the event of a sexual predator's attack. Voyle Glover, Attorney At Law, delivers an excellent work in this light." (Kirk Wesley Hunt Pneuma Review 20070414)
"Not only should this book be in the church library, but librarians should point out this important book to all church leadership. No church can afford to ignore these issues. Highly recommended." (Church Libraries 20060103)
"The most helpful part of the book may be the appendices. There are 11 of them, some very short, but some that might be considered worth the price of the book. We think especially of the forms, such as 'Children's Worker Application,' 'Consent by Volunteer Worker,' and the two 'Questions to Ask,' one dealing with references and one with former churches. We thought the 'Tip Sheet for Trips and Outings' and the information as to where to get information checks ('Resources') were very helpful too. Let's put it like this: the cost of this book is extremely minimal compared with what your church might lose in a law suitoto say nothing of your reputation in the community. We highly recommend it." (The Biblical Evangelist )
"This is an easily read, informative book, handling the subject with sensitivity and a solid dose of truth on all three levels: spiritual, realistic and legal. It is also a must have for every single church, pastor and church leader. Run, do not walk, to the nearest outlet to get this book." (Carolyn R. Scheidies Author's Choice Reviews )
"This practical and pertinent book by attorney Voyle Glover cuts to the chase, providing concise, succinct guidelines for protection against sexual predators. Glover's expertise on a wide variety of issues will minimize a church's risk by reducing the opportunities for predators, decreasing liability, and managing the excessive legal exposure." (Next Step Resources 20060301)
Glover, an attorney says churches must prepare themselves for the possibility of abuse as they work to prevent it. He offers invaluable advice handling the media, insurance and integrating sexual offenders into a congregation. (Ann Byle The Grand Rapids Press )
From the Back Cover
They sit in our pews. They come to our church picnics. They may even teach Sunday school or serve on a committee. They are sexual predators, and no church or ministry is immune to the devastating effects of child sexual abuse and the resulting litigation.
Good intentions alone will not stop the physical, emotional, financial, and spiritual damage resulting from just one incident of abuse. This invaluable guide, written by an experienced attorney and active church member, provides must-have information on important questions such as:
• What if a church member or leader is accused of molestation?
• What should be said to the media after an incident or an allegation?
• What insurance coverage should a church have?
• What screening and background checks should be used for church
• What policies should be implemented to protect children?
“Whether you are running 50 or 500 on Sunday morning, you owe it to yourself and to your congregation to read and study the material in this book. . . . Voyle, you have written a winner!”
—Evangelist Tim Lee
“A ‘must-read’ for pastors, ministry leaders, and church members. . . . Predators have no respect for ministries or those who work and worship there. We must be aware, informed, and prepared. [This book] is a vital tool in our arsenal with which we can protect our children.”
