Books That Touch Your Heart and Mind (Part 6)
August 18, 2013 Length: 28:32
In this broadcast, Fr. Gabriel discusses one of his favorite books on spiritual care from the Lutheran tradition. He has cherished this book for some forty years now and used it in his former teaching life at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago. It is titled The Hammer of God and was written by the Rev. Bo Giertz, a biblical scholar, parish priest in rural and urban settings, and Bishop of the Diocese of Gothenburg, Sweden. Though this book comes from another tradition, Fr. Gabriel knows that you will find in its story and content good news for your heart and mind.
"AFR is a Godsend, as I was received into the Russian Orthodox Church on Good Friday, April 6, 2007, and have been living in Moscow ever since. My priest is an Englishman, which helps, but of course he is busy, so I need as many English resources as possible."
