In an entertaining talk that bridges the ideological terrain between mental health and religion, a pastor and clinical psychologist describes the basic issues surrounding the abuse of authority in religious institutions. Teachers should be held to a higher standard, the Bible says, but adhering to that standard will be more consistent when checks and balances are incorporated into church administration. When pastors stray, forgiveness and mercy are appropriate, but justice and protection for church members are more important when predators and repeat offenders do not respond to treatment. Ortberg is a laid-back speaker, funny in just the right places, with strong ideas that hold the listener's attention for the full 90 minutes. T.W.
