Sr. Mary Benet McKinney has studied many secular models for group decision making. While these secular models are interesting, they do not take into account the faith dimension necessary for group decision making in a religious context. So, the author has set out to describe and propose a model for decision making which is specifically Christian.
This book is for any person in a parish who must participate in some form of group decision making. It shows that a faith-filled approach to group work can help bring about a sense of church for everyone in parish ministry.
