This is a collection of essential passages on the ministry of the church. By selecting sources which share a common assumption concerning the nature of theology and its methodology, the editor presents a single consistent theology of ministry.'
'...everyone who is willing to study the doctrine of ministry in a wider theological context will discover a gold mine.' Themelios'A fulsome celebration of a timeless neo-orthodoxy untainted by what is contemporary or merely topical.'John Saxbee, Theological Book Review'A strong collection of texts. The collection has the virtue of being more than a 'smogasbord', it represents the family of modern Reformed theology, which has been through the fires of the twentieth century and proved itself. It will serve ministers very well as a stimulus to preaching and praxis.' Timothy Bradshaw, Regents Reviews
