Product Description

Using the wisdom of the past to address the challenges of the present, Christopher Beeley's Leading God's People: Wisdom from the Early Church for Today presents key principles of church leadership as they were taught by great pastor theologians of the early church, including Gregory of Nazianzus, Ambrose, Augustine, Chrysostom, and Gregory the Great. Beeley examines issues related to authority, character for leadership, the cure of souls, Scripture and theology, and ministry of the word and sacrament.

Endorsements

In a religious climate where language about leadership is often regarded as basically a matter of secular managerial intrusion into theology, it is wonderful to have a book like this that roots our thinking about the calling of the Christian leader in the wisdom of the early church. This learned, readable, and very timely book deserves a very warm welcome.
-Rowan Williams
Archbishop of Canterbury

A foundational and systematic description of the model of leadership in the early Christian community. The author weaves throughout his book excerpts from the epistles of St. Paul and the writings of the church fathers to illustrate that these early theologians understood the essential need for pastoral virtue, humility, holiness, and inspired preaching for effective church leadership. In particular, St. Augustine's insights are very compelling. Leading God's People serves as an instructional and meditative companion for clergy members, seminarians, and lay ministers who desire to faithfully exercise their church authority in the most representational manner of Christ's pastoral shepherding of his flock.
-Daniel Cardinal DiNardo
Archbishop of Galveston-Houston

This is a wonderful book, based upon Christopher Beeley's deep love and knowledge of the great fathers of the church, East and West, as well as the practice of ministry within the church...Provides solid guidance to all who are interested in the practice of Christian leadership, both lay and ordained.
-John Behr
Dean, St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary
