A BOOK REVIEW OF AUGUSTINE AS MENTOR: A MODEL FOR PREPARING SPIRITUAL LEADERS BY EDWARD L. SMITHER JOY MORROW CHURCH HISTORY 520 SEPTEMBER 22, 2013 2 Edward L. Smither’s book on Augustine as Mentor brings to light the importance and relevance of mentoring not only in the early church, but for the modern-day Christian church as well. Smither’s years of study left a legacy in his assessment of this Augustinian inheritance and its value for leaders and those who instruct on leadership. As he states in the Preface, “[T]this study is concerned with mentoring spiritual leaders, that is, shepherding those who shepherd the Lord’s flock.”  His primary concern is for the pastors who are in isolation as they have no one to be accountable. Mentoring is perhaps a lost art and Smither’s has found a rare piece in Augustine’s example.

Review of David N. Entwistle’s Integrative Approaches to Psychology and Christianity Cynthia Warren Liberty University Review of David N. Entwistle’s Integrative Approaches to Psychology and Christianity Summary Entwistle’s goal of this book is to inform the reader that there are two different books of God: His word and His works (Enwistle, 2010, p. 26). The Bible states, Jesus and His disciples used integration to perform God’s work. As in 2 Timothy 3:16: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.
