Ministry in the Church

In this survey of ministry in the church, Paul Bernier offers a comprehensive, engaging perspective on the development of Christian ministry. He shows how this development came about in response to specific social or cultural needs, and discourages placing blame for practices promulgated in good faith and for the common good. This book well illustrates the fluidity and form of Christian ministry, and its place both in and outside the institutional Church. It is an excellent resource for adult education, as well as for pastoral ministers seeking to broaden their understanding of their roles.
