5.0 out of 5 stars clear direction, 21 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this book because I work with volunteers in both a church setting and in other areas too. The author gives clear direction to anyone whose role it is to attract, train, encourage and support volunteers. He gives examples of how his suggestions have been applied to real situations within his ministry. He makes many references to "building up the body" of volunteer workers within the church but his advice is just as relevant to those working with volunteers in other settings. This book offers a well-written mix of spiritual guidance and sound common sense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be required reading for every clergyperson in training!, 18 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Building Up the Body: Encouraging, Equipping and Enabling Volunteers in the Church (Paperback)
A wonderfully accessable and thoughtful exploration of the relationship between authority and genuine collaboration in the Church today. This emminently sensible, well constructed and practical reflection provides simple guidelines for all who are involved in working with volunteers at all levels of church life.
In this time of reduced income and reduced clergy numbers overall, Richard Steel recognises that the Body of Christ is totally dependent upon its volunteer members, yet the essential practice of working with volunteers is barely acknowledged in training for ministry.
Sadly it is true to say that although most paid members of the Church of England can spell 'collaboration' precious few of them have a clue as to what it actually means, let alone how to make it work.
