Augustine as Mentor “an important book”

08Dec08

The relationship that Augustine established with others engaged with him in pastoral ministry has fascinated scholars for decades. Now a new perspective is brought to the question by this book. It looks at how Augustine was the mentor of his disciples and, indeed, how this relationship was for more common in the early church than has hitherto been recognized. This is an important book not just for students of Augustine but for anyone interested in the theology of ministry in the Christian church.
