Ordained Ministry in the United Methodist Church
Author: William B. Lawrence
Paperback
ISBN: 
9780938162698

Author Dr. William B. Lawrence gives us a gift in this history of ordination in the Methodist tradition. From our beginnings, ordination has always been about the community. The community confirms one's call, helps him/her make decisions about preparation for ministry, and shares in the supervision and ongoing evaluation of the ordained. Ordination is a communal affirmation for the common good. Dr. Lawrence challenges us to look outside the church to the needs of the whole world as we make decisions about who will be ordained and how they will live out ordination.

Preach so that others will come if only to watch you burn.

In C. K. Barrett, we meet a masterful biblical scholar and gifted preacher who never lost touch with his Wesleyan heritage. In the wake of the discovery of his sermon notebooks, it became immediately apparent to Dr. Ben Witherington that these sermons were of immense value for, not only students of modern Methodism and its homiletics but also for theologians and pastors who want to see how the interweaving of insightful biblical exposition and Wesleyan theology can be done with skill and clarity.
