|A redefinition of priesthood that challenges the ministry of laity and clergy alike.|
From the Publisher:
There is a lot of tension in churches today about whose ministry is primary -- that of the laity or of the clergy, L. William Countryman argues that we can resolve that problem only by seeing that we are all priests simply by virtue of being human and living, as we all do, on the mysterious and uncertain border with the Holy. Living on the Border of the Holy offers a way of understanding the priesthood of the whole people of God and the priesthood of the ordained in complementary ways by showing how both are rooted in the fundamental priestly nature of human life. After an exploration of the ministry of both laity and ordained, Countryman concludes by examining the implications of this view of priesthood for churches and for educating those studying for ordination.
