  • subtitles Product description

    The debate over women's ordination refuses to die away. It has generated some light, but also heat and pain, and has raised a host of other questions. Do all churches 'ordain' - even if they do not use the term? What authority do they accord their leaders? Is there any common ground? These ten essays present different views of ordination and ministry in a spectrum of churches. For centuries these traditions have been at odds, and debate has frequently been acrimonious. This book paves the way for a fresh consensus on ordination. All the contributors have responsibility in training women and men for Christian leadership.
