What makes Christian ministry Christian? Theologian Andrew Purves explores at the deepest level the true and essential nature of Christian ministry. By comparison, the way ministry is often approached, in practice and in training, is severely lacking and profoundly misleading. This misapprehension explains the crisis in pastoral work we currently face. Rooting our church service in Christ's own continuing ministry, Purves provides a vision for students and practicing clergy to reclaim the vital connection between Christ and our participation in his ministry today, even if it means we have to let Christ himself put to death our own ministries to which we cling so closely. A radical appraisal for a critical malady affecting the life of the Christian church.
