Item Description...
Addressing the changing role of the ordained ministry, Roger Beckwith looks both within and without the church walls in this journey of exploration. While the clergy's traditional roles in education, counseling, social welfare, and marriage guidance have been taken over by teachers, doctors, psychiatrists, and social workers, inside, the ordained ministry is also under attack. With the campaign for the ministry of the laity and the prevalence of the Charismatic Movement, the claiming of exclusive rights for the clergy has become much more problematic. This book explores the emergence and function of the ordained ministry against its historical background and draws out important lessons for today's church.

Admitted NT departure  Jan 1, 2007
I bought this text thinking it was a defense of presbyterian government--oops! One of the current Anglican writers, he gives a great discussion of NT practice in the first chapter; that is, the office of presbyter (elder) and episkopos ("bishop") were one office (cf. Acts 20) and then admits that the early church departed from the NT practice. His defense of this apparent move is his assumption of the authority of tradition. In other words, its OK to deviate from clear NT teaching on church government b/c the early church did and in the second century began the proto-episcopacy. He argues that the church put time conditions on baptism and developed other traditions for the Eucharist, so here government is no problem. He admits that this is contrary to the NT! The early church may have had traditions surrounding baptism, but did not alter the NT teaching on the nature of the rite. In other words, there is no altering baptism at all, but there is an altering of church government. The fallacy of equivocation. I put the book down; perhaps I'll read the rest one day.
