Item description for As One with Authority: Reflective Leadership in Ministry by Jackson W. Carroll & Jackson Shoes Caroll...
Overview This book is an effort to recover a valid meaning of authority in an age that for a variety of reasons has rejected old hierarchical notions of authority. It proposes a way of reconceiving nd exercising authority for ministry that takes seriously the ministry that the whole people of God share.
This essential work focuses on reclaiming a healthy understanding of authority in the church by reviewing the meaning of clergy authority and examining how this authority has been used and abused. Jackson Carroll asks how a sense of clergy authority might be recovered--one that honors shared ministry among clergy and lay leaders while it appreciates the distinctive tasks of each clergyperson.
