The Paradox of Power

Michael H Crosby

Paperback 2008-09-01

Publisher Description

Drawing from real-life examples as well as theory, this treatiseĀ explores the potential for inspiration and wisdom that resides in power and demonstrates how the creative energy of power can heal andĀ invigorateĀ  relationships, marriages, and families,Ā and benefitĀ larger organizations such as corporations, churches, and even nations. For the citizens of a political economy and country like the United States, or members of the faith community of the Roman Catholic Church, issues related to the negative use of power, such as control and repression, have dominated the discussion. The destructive manifestations and consequences of power are critiqued in theĀ early chaptersĀ of this book. In subsequent chapters the forgotten aspects of power-its positive influences onĀ families, communities and organizations-are discussed. In addition, the guide presents a vision of a Trinitarian God that can be applied to all relationships, whether personal, communal, or collective.
