James F. Cobble, Jr. and Richard R. Hammar, Risk Management Handbook for Churches and Schools (St. Matthews, North Carolina: Christian Ministry Resources, 2001). This book provides comprehensive guidelines for preventing accidents, protecting the physical property and assets of a Christian organization, and minimizing potential litigation. It covers such matters as the handling of money, defamation, counseling, fire, crime, and vandalism, contracts, sexual misconduct and child abuse, and employment discrimination. It is a real "eye-opener" with many practical and well-considered suggestions, making it a "must read" for Christian organizations operating in the ever-increasingly hyper-litigious Western world.
