Item Description...
Overview
Must hierarchy mean dominance, patriarchy, and oppression? Or is there an alternative view of hierarchy? These questions split the Church during the Reformation and still polarize it today. In addressing these questions, Nichols, in That All May Be One, maintains that hierarchy has become almost a pejorative term. Both its attackers and defenders tend to identify it with centralized authoritarian control, which raises a problem for those Churches with a hierarchal episcopate especially the Roman Catholic Church, which is, according to Vatican II (Lumen gentium) hierarchial. Nichols contends that this problem has torn the Catholic Church in two. The only thing the two sides agree on is that hierarchy is domination: the right wants to enforce it, the left, to reject it. But to Nichols the notion of hierarchy as domination is distorted, because hierarchy's role is to preserve apostolic teaching and the unity of the Church, and to foster participation and integration. In That All May Be One Nichols maintains that the ecclesial structure of the Church should reflect both the invisible (ontological) aspects and visible (institutional) aspects of hierarchy. Ontologically, Christianity is a hierarchy of participation and integration. The believer's relation to God, through Christ and the Spirit, is one of participation in and integration into the divine life. Presenting a perspective on hierarchy drawn from the natural sciences, Church history, and contemporary social models, Nichols suggests that this model of ecclesial hierarchy that does not dominate, but draws people into participation in the life of the Christ and the Spirit should be recovered. Nichols details the notion of participatory hierarchy, grounding it in Scripture and in Christian tradition. He concludes with the position that a balanced understanding of hierarchy is critical for the integrity of Roman Catholicism, for the catholicity of the whole Christian Church, and for ecumenical progress. Written from an ecumenical perspective, That All May Be One is addressed to those who are concerned about hierarchy in the Roman Catholic Church, non-Catholics who are concerned about hierarchy in their own Churches, and those concerned about the ecumenical movement. Readers parish educators, priests, theologians, seminarians, Catholic college students, and educated laity will appreciate Nichols' clear account of the timely topic of hierarchy.

Must hierarchy mean dominance, patriarchy, and oppression? This and other questions split the Church during the Reformation and still polarize it today.

In addressing these questions, Nichols, in That All May Be One, maintains that hierarchy has become almost a pejorative term. Both its attackers and defenders tend to identify it with centralized authoritarian control, which raises a problem for those Churches with a hierarchal episcopate -- especially the Roman Catholic Church, which is, according to Vatican II, hierarchial.

But to Nichols this notion of hierarchy as domination is distorted, because hierarchy's role is to preserve apostolic teaching and the unity of the Church and to foster integration. In That All May Be One Nichols maintains that the ecclesial structure of the Church should reflect both the invisible (ontological) aspects and visible (institutional) aspects of hierarchy. Presenting a perspective on hierarchy drawn from Church history, the natural sciences, and contemporary social models, Nichols suggests that this existing model of ecclesial hierarchy -- hierarchy that does not dominate, but draws people into participation in the life of Christ and the Spirit -- should be reexamined and recovered.
