Item Description...
Scholarly studies consider Paul's views on leadership tend to fall into one of three camps: 1) the historical development view, which in large measure identifies developments in church practice with developments in Pauline and deutero-Pauline ecclesiology; 2) the synchronic, historical reconstruction, typically making use of Graeco-Roman, social context sources, or social-scientific modelling, focusing on a single congregation, and sometimes distinguishing between the situation to which Paul was responding and the pattern he sought to impose; and 3) the theological/hermeneutical analysis, identifying Paul's particular approach to power and authority, often independently of any detailed reconstruction of the situations to which Paul was responding. Andrew Clarke has explored in an earlier work, Serve the Community of the Church (Eerdmans, 2000), the distinctive, local and historical situations in the various Pauline communities and concluded that there is no evidence that they organised themselves according to a common set of governmental structures which clearly developed with the passage of time. Rather each community was influenced by its own localized, social and cultural context. The present project builds on this, and necessarily focuses on leadership style rather than church order. It seeks to recover from Paul's critical responses, his generic ethos of church leadership, including the ideal qualities, characteristics and task of leaders and the nature of appropriate interaction and engagement with church members. In the light of current, theoretical discussions about power and gender, the study focuses particularly on Paul's attitude towards hierarchy, egalitarianism, authority, responsibility and privilege.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Leadership In a Different Manner  Oct 15, 2008
Andrew Clarke does a fine job of describing a Pauline theology of church leadership. Unlike many popular works describing current models of leadership, Clarke keeps his focus on the Pauline corpus with an eye to the changes, if any, in Paul's description of leadership across time. Clarke specifically argues that to understand leadership from a Pauline perspective, one must understand that the household is the central context of Paul's view of the local church. Given the cultural setting, Pauline leadership is hierarchical.

Clarke argues that the essential tools for leadership are teaching and personal discipleship by leaders within the community. In this regard, Clarke's analysis would have been greatly enhanced by a discussion of the insights of Michael Polanyi. Reading Clarke, one wonders if the way in which we train leadership for churches today in anyway follows the Pauline model.

This is a fine book. It provides a rich deposit of fresh scholarship. At this price, few will take the plunge, opting instead for the easily digestable books found in Christian bookstores in which it is sufficient to simply read the table of contents in order to understand 90% of the entire book!
