Item description for Holiness and Ministry: A Biblical Theology of Ordination by Thomas B. Dozeman...

The World Council of Churches has called for renewed theological reflection on the biblical roots of ordination to strengthen the vocational identity of the ordained and to provide a framework for ecumenical dialogue. This book is a response to that call. It is grounded in the assumption that the vocation of ordination requires an understanding of holiness and how it functions in human religious experience. The goal is to construct a biblical theology of ordination that is embedded in broad reflection on the nature of holiness. Dozeman's study of holiness and ministry interweaves three methodologies. The first, from the History of Religions, describes two theories of holiness in the study of religion, as a dynamic force and as a ritual resource. Both play a central role in biblical literature and establish the paradigm of ordination to Word and Sacrament in Christian tradition. Second, the study of the formation of the Mosaic Office illustrates how the two views of holiness model ordination to the prophetic word and to the priestly ritual. Third, Canonical Criticism provides the lens to explore the ongoing influence of the Mosaic Office in the New Testament literature.
Holiness and Ministry will assist candidates for ordination to discern their call experience and establish professional identity within individual traditions of Christianity, while also providing a resource for ecumenical dialogue on the nature and purpose of Christian ordination.

Reviews - What do customers think about Holiness and Ministry: A Biblical Theology of Ordination?

Scholarship at its best  Nov 5, 2008
With Holiness and Ministry, Thomas Dozeman has taken up the challenge laid down in the World Council of Churches' document called "The Faith and Order Paper on Baptism, Eucharist, and Ministry." That challenge was to present a theological understanding of ordination, one that would be useful (among other things) for ecumenical dialogue. Dozeman has done that and more; with this book he has offered the Christian church a marvelous gift. This tightly-argued and surprisingly-slim volume lays out both the Old and New Testament understandings of ordained ministry and then argues for a theology of ordination grounded in what he calls "the complex nature of the Mosaic office." Dozeman is clearly a scholar, and so he writes with scholarly precision, and yet his arguments are accessible. My own sense is that this book would be critically important for all ordained clergy to read.
