Item description for Ordination: Celebrating the Gift of Ministry by Stephen Sprinkle...

For graduating seminary students, Stephen Sprinkle has written a practical theological guide for preparing for ordination in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), United Church of Christ, American Baptist Church, Presbyterian Church (USA), and other closely related denominations. He provides a theology of what ordination is and what it means to the person being ordained, to the life of the church at large, and to the congregation gathered for the celebration. Sprinkle includes "hands-on" practical guidance on how to plan the service, plus samples of ordination services from each of the four traditions.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ordination: Celebrating the Gift of Ministry?

Start with the Ending!  Apr 7, 2004
The first three chapters provide an excellent and challenging theological reflection on ordination, but if you still need to be convinced of why you should read this book, start with the ending! The extensive, step-by-step manual for planning an ordination service in chapter four is invaluable for anyone preparing to graduate from seminary (or for the ordination committees charged with guiding these seminarians). The simple, "how-to" schedule begins six months before the ordination, takes you through the day of the service, and includes follow-up tasks for the week after the ordination. It is also well-worth the price of admission just to read the six inspiring examples of ordination sermons at the end of the book. A must-read for anyone considering ordination or for friends and family who want to understand the ordination process better. Highly recommended.
