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.
"Ancient faith radio is a blessing for me. I download podcasts and listen to them in the car, on my lunch breaks, while cleaning and shopping, and whenever else I can. It is teaching me more about the church that I have been a part of since being baptized as a baby."
