The difference between titles and roles, 23 Jan. 2002
An insightive book, which explores the principal that the titles of Bishop, priest and deacon reflect roles rather than persons, and are equally applicable to the responsibilities of the laity as they are to the roles of the clergy. Ministry is to do with teamwork using different gifts rather than hierachical structures focused on what people are promoted to. A ground breaking book. Post-Charismatic, post- evangelical, post clerical. Readable.
