By: Jerry Wragg (author)Paperback
2 - 4 weeks availability
This book is an attempt to recover for Protestants the significance of the ordained priesthood. In the past the priesthood of the ordained has proved to be thoroughly problematic, not least for ecumenical debate. Herbert explores the ministry throughan exposition of Kenotic and Trinitarian theology. He argues that the priesthood is called to announce Gods gracious saving act in Jesus Christ and so call people to respond gratefully through Christian living. At the Eucharist, argues Herbert, the priest is not the one who has the specific power of consecration but the one who is commissioned to retell the story of Godssaving act.
