Ministerial Ethics provides both new and experienced pastors with tools for sharpening their personal and professional decision-making skills. The authors seek to explain the unique moral role of the minister and the ethical responsibilities of the vocation and to provide "a clear statement of the ethical obligations contemporary clergy should assume in their personal and professional lives." Trull and Carter deal with such areas as family life, confidentiality, truth-telling, political involvement, working with committees, and relating to other church staff members. First published in 1993, this edition has been thoroughly updated throughout and contains expanded sections on theological foundations, the role of character, confidentiality, and the timely topic of clergy sexual abuse. Appendices describing various denominational ministerial codes of ethics are included.

Excerpt from The Ethics and Etiquette of the Pulpit, Pew, Parish, Press and Platform: A Manual of Manners for Ministers and Members For years I have been impressed that a Manual of Manners for ministers and members would be serviceable to both. Books on pastoral theology ignore, as beneath their dignity, the social peccadilloes and pulpit mannerisms of preachers. They go uncorrected and many find out, late in life, how they have been handicapped by faults. Friends, from fear of giving offense, have failed to admonish, and because of compensatory gifts, they have been tolerated and carried who might, divested of these clogs, have forged to the front. Others have achieved mediocre success who could, with foibles overcome, have mounted to the top, and have halted on lower levels. Many conscious of talent and studious, have felt unappreciated, the result of some trifling fault, and suffered positive discomfort. A preacher must be a gentleman. In the degree he falls below that does he stop short of meeting popular demand and is unsuccessful. Society will not tolerate, in a minister, cant, slang, pet phrases, and vulgar habits. He must be a man of clean hands, literally, as well as of a pure heart. Unspotted linen and a clean heart complement each other. Speech must be seasoned with salt. Egotism has slaughtered thousands, as Sampson the Philistines-with the jawbone of an ass. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

What makes Methodist worship "Methodist" or "Wesleyan?" How do Methodists evaluate emerging forms of worship in light of their own liturgical heritage? This book considers these questions by bringing to light the work and significance of three Methodist liturgists who have until now received precious little scholarly focus: Thomas O. Summers (1812-1882), Nolan B. Harmon (1892-1993), and James F. White (1932-2004). Exploring each one’s contribution to the Methodist movement, it evaluates their continuing legacies as scholars and practitioners of Methodist worship. Importantly, the work of all these men occurred during times of cultural change, which gave rise to new ways of worship within the landscape of American Methodism. Addressing them in chronological order, this study shows how each figure enacted liturgical reform and renewal by drawing from the liturgical textual tradition inherited directly from John Wesley’s Sunday Service of the Methodist in North America as well as the hymnody of Charles Wesley. It also demonstrates how they sought to inculturate the Wesleyan liturgical tradition in the midst of these significant changes. Evaluating historic and emerging trends in Methodist liturgical praxis, this is a book that will be of great interest to scholars of Methodism, the History of Religion, Liturgical Studies and Theology.

In my own church family, the classic text on ministerial ethics, at least for the past three generations, has been Bishop Nolan B. Harmon's, Ministerial Ethics and Etiquette (Nashville: Abingdon, 1928; latest revision in 1987).
Author: William H. Willimon
Publisher: Abingdon Press
In Calling & Character, Willimon lays out a clear and compelling picture of the pastoral life, one that will inform both those embarking on ordained ministry and those who have been in it for many years. He lays out specific habits such as study, collegiality, and humor as the day-by-day means of following the difficult and dangerous, yet deeply rewarding, calling of a pastor.

The emergence of Pentecostalism in Ghana has attracted a massive following and generated institutions that have significantly impacted Christian discourse and national life. The movement has produced prominent leaders who have developed exemplary Christian education programs and generated volumes of Christian literature unprecedented in Ghanaian Christianity. Nevertheless, public opinion often upbraids church leaders for unethical conduct. Despite the concern for high moral standards set by Pentecostal church polity and ministerial ethical codes, reports of Pentecostal ministerial misconduct appear regularly in the media. Although congregation members and perceptive public observers appreciate the constructive moral impact of Pentecostal ministers, instances of promiscuity, power abuse, financial misappropriation, and superstition reveal a gap between ethical ideals and practice. As this research reveals, factors behind unethical ministerial conduct include inadequate training, poor accountability, and a general low level of ethical reflection. Good Pastors, Bad Pastors suggests that a multidimensional approach of responsible reportage, emphatic moral education, appropriate but sympathetic response to moral failure, and peer-review accountability could help uphold a higher standard of ministerial ethics.
Note that by ethics we no longer mean , as was the case at the turn of the century , the morality of the minister , or even , to use Nolan Harmon's 1928 title , Ministerial Ethics and Etiquette ( Harmon 1928 , 1987 ) .

What are Christian ethics? A Christian’s ethics should originate within the boundaries of Christianity, and likewise, the sole basis for ethical practices and behaviors should be built upon the theological threshold of God, the Lordship of Christ his Son, and the hope of glory in habituating the new kingdom. Ministerial Ethics in the 21st Century answers fundamental questions about Christian ethics, explaining what it means to be ethical in ministry. Author Antwon C. Lewis also helps us understand what constitutes a healthy character and what role discernment plays in various ethical situations. Christian leaders will especially benefit from this study, as they can have their moral principles be influenced by scriptural standards—and not determine right or wrong based on their own value system. A crisis in today’s society does indeed exist—and our present world is challenged with a need for ministerial ethics. Therefore, thorough research and investigation are needed, and Ministerial Ethics in the 21st Century will help ameliorate continued hypocrisy and poor ministerial integrity in the church.
Ministerial ethics are rarely required fortheprofession except in aninformal way. Overthree decades ago, I came acrossNolan Harmon's Ministerial Ethics and Etiquette, a classic inthe areaof personalethics for ministry.

This volume combines insights from secular sexuality education, trauma studies, and embodiment to explore effective strategies for teaching sexuality and religion in colleges, universities, and seminaries. Contributors to this volume address a variety of sexuality-related issues including reproductive rights, military prostitution, gender, fidelity, queerness, sexual trauma, and veiling from the perspective of multiple religious faiths. Christian, Jewish, and Muslim scholars present pedagogy and classroom strategies appropriate for secular and religious institutional contexts. By foregrounding a combination of "perspective transformation" and "embodied learning" as a means of increasing students’ appreciation for the varied social, psychological, theological and cultural contexts in which attitudes to sexuality develop, the volume posits sexuality as a critical element of teaching about religion in higher education. This book will be of great interest to graduate and postgraduate students, researchers, academics, and libraries in the fields of Religious Studies, Religious Education, Gender & Sexuality, Religion & Education, and Sociology of Religion.

With easy access to sermons on the Internet, plus pressure to deliver the next sermon with little time to prepare, no wonder some pastors have resorted to plagiarizing other people’s sermons, passing them off as their own.This growing epidemic has received coverage in the Wall Street Journal, on National Public Radio, and elsewhere. Some pastors have been caught in the act and dismissed from their churches. Is this fair? Is this stealing? How can you recognize it? How can it be prevented? This book not only helps explain the problem, but it also explores the ethical implications and gives advice on how to avoid it or deal with it if the problem surfaces in your church. It includes study questions at the end of chapters and a concluding case study.
