From, “Stop Shouting!”
Looks to be an excellent read. You can pre-order at Amazon if you wish, or be sent an email when it’s available. Once we get it and have it read, we’ll post a review.
‘Stop Shouting’ has provided very good information in the past, so we’re taking it on faith that the book will be worthwhile.
“It is a book concerned with recognition of danger and of malefactors. On the surface, it would seem to approach the topic from the point of view of solely concerning Churches and other ministry activities, but to dismiss it as such is to do yourself and your loved ones a profound disservice. I approached this topic with some skepticism and from the viewpoint of a lapsed Catholic life, thinking this was only about Churches. I was so, so wrong, as it is so much more than that. The book rewards those with faith in the message itself, not in any specific faith overview. It is eminently practical advice of great utility in anyone’s life. If you have children, even more so.”
Looking forward to the book! Here’s a synopsis taken from the review (emphasis added):
“…understand that this is not a tactical manual, or a work on small unit leadership. It is, however, suitable for someone with zero experience in these issues to pick up and read, yet provides a depth that professionals will find great utility in. This work is designed to provide awareness of a lethal problem, how to recognize, assess and categorize it – as well as how to engage, de-escalate and mitigate. This is a work by an experienced, credentialed man on a mission to help you save the lives of those around you. The book is well worth your time and is a gateway to other works and authors that Dr. Isaacs lists and credits in his work.”
