NARCISSISM NOTES #8–Book Review Links for *When Narcissism Comes To Church* by Chuck DeGroat


When Narcissism Comes To Church: Healing Your Community From Emotional and Spiritual Abuse, by Chuck DeGroat (InterVarsity Press; release date March 17, 2020).

I’m still processing my own review, which I plan to post around the official book release date. But if your interest has been piqued, you’ll find many reviews already available online — both official Endorsement Reviews and reader reviews. More will be available on/after the launch date of March 17th, as some sales sources do not post reader reviews until the official release date.

From being on Chuck DeGroat‘s launch team, I know a broad range of people are dedicating themselves to reading and reviewing his book. These include both men and women, from multiple generations, with personal and professional backgrounds that may include being a: pastor, church staff member, abuse survivor or family member, therapist-counselor-clinician, spiritual formation director, teacher, professor, leadership trainer, church planter, researcher, blogger, and/or book author.

Check out their reviews — the composite of these many perspectives provides a significant sense of how exceptionally relevant for all kinds of disciples that When Narcissism Comes To Church is!

And feel free to share this post or repost any of the information/links from the list below.

P.S. Still time to pre-order from InterVarsity Press or your favorite bookstore.

Reader Reviews

This section is for links to blog posts of people’s reviews that aren’t found elsewhere, especially if they are longer than what fit on book sites. (Some of them limit the number of characters, as I found out last time I was on a launch team, and had to edit down some of mine to fit.) So, these readers may have other or shorter versions on Goodreads, Amazon, or elsewhere.
