A New Book from Henry Chan '90


The Rev. Dr. Henry A. Chan, Class of 1990, has recently published Historical Models for the Priest As Pastor: From the Major Works of Gregory the Great, Geoffrey Chaucer, Thomas à Kempis, George Herbert, Richard Baxter, William Law and Urban T. Holmes, III. The book is a theological and pastoral reflection on the priestly office, and reviews the work of pastors and priests from Gregory the Great onward who still have much to teach us about achieving excellence in priestly vocation.

He served as a mediator at Community Mediation Services in Queens, New York, and was a member of the Board of Directors, 2002-2006. Chan is currently a member of the American Psychological Association and is also the author of The Humanity of Mediators: From a Study of the Major Concepts of Victor E. Frankl and The Mediator as Human Being: From a Study of Major Concepts of Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, Erik Erikson and Abraham Maslow.
