Endorsement of Edward Smither’s Augustine as Mentor

08Dec08

The church today is becoming ever more aware of its need to look to the ancient fathers for wisdom. Christian leaders who wish to draw on patristic insights need to read Ed Smither’s useful study of Augustine as a spiritual mentor. Smither investigates ancient practice with the expertise of a scholar and the heart of a pastor. His conclusions about Augustine’s approach to mentoring are as relevant in the twenty-first century as they were in the fifth.
