BOOK OF PASTORAL RULE, THE: ST. GREGORY THE GREAT
A new translation of an ancient but timely work from the great sixth century Pope of Rome who sponsored the mission of St. Augustine to evangelise the English. Recognised as the most thorough pastoral treatise of the patristic era the duties and obligations of clergy are addressed in four parts: the appropriate selection of clergy; the life that a pastor should lead; how to discern and bring healing of sins in different types of people; how to guard against egoism and personal ambition. Complimented by an informative introduction this is essential reading for all concerned with effective pastoral ministry.
