Read what others are saying about First Aid

To date very little has been written and published to help a church go through this crisis.  Now someone has taken the initiative to do so.  This book by Daryl Crouch is destined to become a classic dealing with this subject.  I recommend it to any individual Christian, deacon body, or church family struggling with a moral failure within its leadership.  In these pages you will find an excellent balance between Christian compassion and biblical instruction. I pray the day will come when this book is no longer necessary. Bob Pitman, Evangelist, Muscle Shoals, Alabama

This is not a book in theory.  This is Emergency Room talk; this is 911 stuff.  This book has real people, real pain and real purpose to it.  In the Critical Care Unit someone has to keep their head while others are losing theirs; Daryl kept his.  He wants you to remember Jesus is still our Head and it is His Church.  You too can go from trauma to triumph.  It’s a great read! Ken Whitten, Senior Pastor, Idlewild Baptist Church, Lutz, Florida

First Aid is an excellent resource that provides help for the church during a crisis of a fallen leader. The principles are biblical and suggested healing steps are practical. The illustrations connect and make the book an emotional read. Mike Smith, Director of Minister/Church Relations, Southern Baptists of Texas Convention

First Aid: Helping Churches Stand When Leaders Fall meets a tremendous need in the sphere of congregational confusion following upon the tragic moral failure of the shepherd leader.  Bill Northcott, Director of Church/Minister Relations, Tennessee Baptist Convention

It is must reading for every church, pastor, leadership team and the laity interested in tooling up for the day if or when a leadership failure hits your world. This work is a gift to the Body of Christ. Jim O’Neill, Vice-President, Tennessee Temple University
