The book should provide a lively counterpoint to both the standard liberal and conservative treatments in courses on Paul's view of ministry. - Theology Today Ellis' judicious treatment and penetrating analysis of the relevant biblical material will force many of us...to think more precisely about the concept of ministry in Paul's writings, how ministry manifested itself in the churches of his day, and what are its implications for us today. - Westminster Theological Journal Ellis gives a sound critique of liberation theology and sociopolitical action as ministry. He gives a balanced view of the gifts and the fruit of the Spirit and, on biblical grounds, he defends the ordination of single and, with qualifications, married women. Challenging, but meant for the intelligent church member. -Librarian's World It's a gem. It is a delightful summary in popular form of themes that Ellis has been at work on throughout his years of productive scholarship. It is 'copiously footnoted...with concise bibliographies on the points at hand...Hence, this short book becomes encyclopedic. - Calvin Theological Journal A splendid tour de force in the best sense. - James G. D. Dunn These essays...represent in many respects a valuable corrective to much of what passes for biblical theology in our times. - Paul J. Achtemeier

Book Description Wipf & Stock Pub. Paperback. Condition: New. 198 pages. Dimensions: 8.3in. x 5.5in. x 0.6in.What exactly is ministry in Pauls theology, and how was ministry manifested in his churches E. Ellis Earle explores these questions in this book, addressing a number of controversial questions head-on: Is sociopolitical action a valid form of Christian ministry Does liberation theology accord with the apostle Pauls theology or fly in the face of it What is the meaning and place of tongues in the churches of Pauls day and of today What is the apostolic teaching on the role of women in ministry and in the home The essential characteristic of ministry for Paul is its eschatological dimension: Christian ministry is a present manifestation of the coming kingdom of God. The primary purpose of ministry, therefore, is not to serve or change society but to call people from the sphere of Adam to community in Christ and to build them up in their new identity in Christ. Throughout his book Ellis demonstrates a solid understanding of the Pauline church in its first-century milieu. He is particularly helpful, however, in bringing out the implications of Pauls theology for the church today. Originally published in 1989 by Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9781597520911
