Item description for Augustine as Mentor: A Model for Preparing Spiritual Leaders by Edward L. Smither...

Overview
Lauded for his thoughts, Augustine of Hippo (354-430) has influenced virtually every philosopher of the last fifteen hundred years. But his personal character and ministry are even more remarkable, for in a time when most monastery dwellers sought solitude, Augustine was always in the company of friends, visiting disciples and writing mentoring letters to those he knew. Augustine as Mentor is written for modern day pastors and spiritual leaders who want to mentor and equip other evangelical Christians based on proven principles in matters of the heart like integrity, humility, faithfulness, personal holiness, spiritual hunger, and service to others. Author Ed Smither explains, "Augustine has something to offer modern ministers pursuing authenticity and longing to 'preach what they practice.' Through his thought, practice, success, and even failures, my hope is that today's mentors will find hope, inspiration, and practical suggestions for how to mentor an emerging generation of spiritual leaders."

Reviews - What do customers think about Augustine as Mentor: A Model for Preparing Spiritual Leaders?

The Enigma of Augustine  Apr 28, 2010
Great book for leaders or anyone interested in Christian maturity.

The man known to many as Saint Augustine represents one of the great puzzles of history. Why did this one-time man of the world forsake everything to become a monk? Even the casual student of history knows that he had a spiritual conversion and that he was a great scholar whose writings endure. But these things do little to explain his humble return to Africa, his decision to start a monastery, or the longevity and effectiveness of his ministry. Dr. Smither points--as an explanation of this enigma--to Augustine's desire to impact the lives of others while garnering for himself a sort of incubator of Christian maturity. His church leadership, cultural and historical impact, and his great contribution to theology can be better understood when we view Augustine as Mentor.
 
Informative, great foundation, makes you want to know more  Oct 15, 2009
I purchased this book for a Graduate writing assignment. However, it is now a treasured part of my personal library. The author presents Augustine in a way that makes you want to know more about him, as a leader, as a Christian, as a friend, and as a perpetual knowledge-seeker.
