Reviews - What do customers think about 11. St. Gregory the Great, Pastoral Care (Ancient Christian Writers)?

Wisdom From The Past  May 17, 2008
Modernists tend to dismiss anything not written or spoken before the year 2000, however we find great and wise teachings long before the silliness of Freud. I was continually surprised at what a learned from the pages of this book. Anyone, clergy or lay, who is engaged in counseling should have this has part of his library of good books.
11. St. Gregory the Great, Pastoral Care (Ancient Christian Writers)   Feb 22, 2008
My husband is a Deacon in the ROAC church and we are starting a mission group in our area. With the new members that we have been meeting with this book has been a great inspiration to him. It has concrete things that he can use in his every day affairs.
useful Pastoral guide  Nov 6, 2005
In the Orthodox Church St Gregory is known as St Gregory Dialogos. He is mostly known for being the author of the Liturgy of the Pre-sanctified gifts used during Great Lent. Many of his "dialogues" are to be found in the classic Byzantine work "Evergetinos", but his work "Pastoral Care" certainly is worth a read. Practical, specifically addressing Pastoral issues makes it a good primer. The Latin misconception of "original sin" instead of "ancestral sin" deprives it of its 5th star.
A challenge and an opportunity. . .  Sep 28, 2001
. . .for any and all members of the clergy -- regardless of their denominational affiliation.

Over the last quarter-century or so, it seems like one cannot pick up a newspaper without reading about yet another scandal by yet another member of the clergy. I firmly believe that if upon ordination/licensing, etc., the new clergyman would read this book and take it to heart, much trouble could be avoided.

Gregory the Great did not seek to become the Bishop of Rome. He did not want the post, nor did he feel himself worthy for the honor. This book was written partly as an apology as to why he did not wish for the honor -- and partly as an instruction manual as to how the clergy should behave, and how they should counsel and treat those who are in sin and/or who come to him for guidance.

Although, due to human sinfulness, the Church no longer speaks with a united voice, Christians of all backgrounds and faiths would benefit from this book. I cannot recommend this volume highly enough.

THE Classic Manual for all Ministers' Souls  May 9, 2001
Until the 20th Century, it was custormary for all newly elected bishops to receive a copy of this book, not merely as a manual of care for their flock, but as a challenge to maintain their own integrity of soul, their first love, in the pressures and temptations of ministry and its attendant power. The sad trend of financial, sexual, and other scandals that have rocked every denomination in the last 20 years could be reversed by returning to the "ancient wisdom" of requiring all ministers to read and re-read this wonderful book. Maybe you have a pastor, priest, or other spiritual leader in your life who could use a little encouragement and wisdom about "taking the plank" out of his/her own eye while they help their flock attend to the "specks"? You won't regret the price or time spent on this classic.
