Freedom for Ministry

Front Cover
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1992 - Religion - 257 pages
Taking a look at today's Church and religious situation, Neuhaus argues that there is a necessary awkwardness about Christian ministry because we are ambassadors of a "disputed sovereignty." Neuhaus also discusses the minister as leader of worship and the art, discipline, and "absurd responsibility" of being a preacher.
