"

Sticks, stones, and words do hurt. No one knows this better than people in ministry who are often the targets of ""Christian critics."" Pastor Blaine Allen helps leaders under attack respond to criticism biblically, working through the bitterness, resentment, and rage that often result. He shows them what to do when they cannot take anymore, when the criticism is accurate, and when they don't want to forgive. The counsel in this valuable book will help the ministry leader know when to shrug off criticism, when to heed the criticism, and when to say enough is enough.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The book, though aimed at ministers, is a must to help every believer in Christ prepare and respond spiritually to charges that may be true or not. This volume holds sound advice for everyone who has been wounded by sharp tongues, malicious gossip, slander, even true statements about your sins that are spoken in order to destroy you, or uttered to damage your testimony."-- (05/01/2006)
"After evaluation, we must learn what to do with criticism. Blaine offers suggestions for when to blow off criticism and when and how to take a stand. Survival techniques including the times when it is hard to forgive are also included. The discussions are filled with scripture and examples that will be a powerful guide for all those who find themselves in the personal struggles of ministry."-- (05/15/2006)
"Dr. Blaine Allen, author of 'When People Throw Stones: A Leader's Guide to Fielding Personal Criticism, ' gives excellent counsel in dealing with verbal attacks and harsh criticism. He's also refreshingly transparent regarding his own life in the ministry."-- (11/14/2005)
I've read other books on how to deal with criticism in the church but this one is different. The writing is personal and speaks to my heart not just my intellect.-- (05/01/2006)
"Allen writes with unusual freshness and transparency on big subjects, such as: when you have done your best; when you cannot take anymore; when your critic speaks the truth; how to deal with unjust criticism; when to take a stand; some survival techniques; how to temper your fire; what to do when an explosion seems inevitable; and when you do not want to forgive. It is inevitable that pastors will face personal criticism. Being thoughtfully prepared and emotionally equipped to handle criticism is vital. I highly recommend a careful and slow study of this excellent book. "-- (06/01/2006)
