This is a timely and profound look at the enduring meaning of church office, and the guidance it is called to provide to the church in light of a changed world and a changing future. Includes essays on how the church offices arose, how they are defined, and how they relate to one another. Major themes include: the universal vs. local church, the ministry of the bishop, priest and deacon, apostolic succession and the practical application of canonical norms.
