To be an interim pastor is to experience a unique position in the life of a church family. It is a privilege and honor. Carl defines a little of this process, and then he delves into particular issues that might exist in the church family during this time, such as burnout, staff conflict, control, pastor abuse, embarrassment, and division. He provides guidelines and expectations and ends the book with some of his sermons on useful topics.
