"When [this book] was originally written, learning about the emotional side of congregations was not part of the curriculum in most seminaries. Now it is the gold standard in this area, and Generation to Generation is a text many clergy carry with them each day... Just as the book’s title suggests, Friedman’s ideas continue to be passed down to today’s generation of leaders." - Gary Emanuel and Mickie Crimone, From the Foreword"Well written and lively... required reading for pastoral counselors of every persuasion... Any therapist will find here new techniques for bringing about changes and will enlarge his or her conceptual framework of the human dilemma." - Jay Haley Vom Verlag:
An acclaimed, influential work now available in paper for the first time, this bestselling book applies the concepts of systemic family therapy to the emotional life of congregations. Edwin H. Friedman shows how the same understanding of family process that can aid clergy in their pastoral role also has important ramifications for negotiating congregational dynamics and functioning as an effective leader. Clergy from diverse denominations, as well as family therapists and counselors, have found that this book directly addresses the dilemmas and crises they encounter daily. It is widely used as a text in courses on pastoral care, leadership, and family systems.
This book will be important reading for clergy and lay leaders, family therapists and counselors, instructors and students in both religious studies and mental health/family fields. It is also widely used as a text in courses on pastoral care, leadership, and family systems.
