Wesley Carr's ministry within the Church of England is renowned and distinguished. As Dean of Westminster Abbey he is often at the forefront of national religious ceremonies. His ministry, academic posts and widely acclaimed books have also established him as one of the leading pastoral theologians in recent times. The Character of Wisdom brings together leading writers, thinkers and broadcasters to reflect on Dr Carr's many and varied contributions to church and national life, and on particular aspects of his ministry and writings. The authors explore themes such as the nature of priestly ministry, the role of clergy and the church, the function of cathedrals, ministry and the media, church finance, discipleship and vocation, and New Testament theology. Presenting an invaluable guide to the present and future shape of pastoral theology, public theology, and ministry, this book shows how practising pastoral theology can hope to reveal something of the manifold wisdom of God. The contributors to this volume are: Paul Avis; Duncan B. Forrester; Robin Gill; Stephen Lowe; Christopher Moody; Anton Obholzer; Emma Percy; Martyn Percy; Alastair Redfern; Edward R. Shapiro; Angela Tilby; Francis Ward; and Tom Wright.

Review:

'This book is a fitting tribute to the profound effect Wesley Carr's thinking and writing has had on a generation of Church leaders, and is testimony to the respect and affection in which he is held by his friends'. The Rt Revd Tim Stevens, Bishop of Leicester '... this volume leaves the reader with some important new insights and some essential theological challenges.' Reviews in Religion and Theology 'one of the original features of this 'festschrift' is Wesley's own response to what we read. It makes the book feel like a real engagement... The range and breadth of these essays is exemplary... This is a wise book reflecting the wise ministry of a wise priest. It is an admirable starting point for the discussion as to where our Church is now and in what directions it is likely to go if, under God, it is to survive and serve.' Crucible 'The genuine tenderness [Wesley Carr] displays in his response to the essays is one of a man touched profoundly that scholars, priests and theologians should present him with such a tribute. In parts it is a challenging one, and the more genuine for that. It is richly deserved.' Theology
