Combining thematic analysis and stimulating close readings, The Collar is a wideranging study of the many ways - heroic or comic, shrewd or dastardly - in which Christian clergy have been represented in literature, from George Herbert and Laurence Sterne via Anthony Trollope, G.K. Chesterton, T.S. Eliot and Graham Greene to Susan Howatch and Robertson Davies, and in film and television, such as Pale Rider, The Thorn Birds, The Vicar of Dibley and Father Ted. Since all Christians are expected to be involved in ministry of some type, the assumptions of secular culture about ministers affect more than just clergy. Ranging across several nations particularly Britain, the U.S., and Canada, denominations, and centuries, The Collar encourages creative and faithful responses to the challenges of Christian leadership and develops awareness of the times when leadership expectations become too extreme. Using the framework of different media to make inquiries about pastoral passion, frustration, and fallibility, Sue Sorensen's well-informed, sprightly and perceptive book will be helpful to anyone who enjoys evocative literature and film as well as to clergy and those interested in practical theology.
