If you meet George Herbert on the road, kill him

Justin Lewis-Anthony

Priestly ministry in the Church of England needs a radical rethink...
George Herbert died in 1633. His legacy continues. His poems are read and sung, and his parish ministry remains the model for the Church of Englands understanding of how and where and why its priests should minister. But there is a problem. The memory of Herbert celebrated by the Church is an inaccurate one, and, in its inaccuracy, is unfair on Herbert himself and his successors in the ordained ministry.

This is a book of the long view. It sets out to assess realistically the context of Herberts life and to explore the difficulties of parish life today. By examining the status and role of parish clergy since Herberts time and today, it draws on the work of historians, social anthropologists, psychologists and theologians, and presents their ideas in a readable and passionate style. It argues that the future strength of parochial ministry will be found in a recovery of historic, renewed understandings of priestly ministry, and concludes by outlining more sustainable patterns of practice for the future.

In a climate of uncertainty for the future of the church, it will be an encouragement for priest and people, and welcomed by both.
