Riassunto: Calling every Christian minister to account One of today's leading theologians shouts a wake-up call to all ministers, ordained and lay, in every denomination. Christianity is facing a crisis of preaching, a crisis of evangelization, a crisis of morality. With apostolic intensity, Kortright Davis challenges many traditional concepts of leadership and service and proposes radical new approaches to restore the vigor to ministry in this post-modern age. Powerfully written, this extraordinary new book - - identifies seven areas of crisis common to the whole Christian church and suggests how to transform them - is firmly rooted in Biblical imperatives to proclaim the Gospel - is thoroughly ecumenical in outlook while helping to renew the strengths inherent in each denomination - draws from the richness of the author's Afro-American heritage, as well as from a wide range of contemporary theologians and spiritual writers. "Kortright Davis has given to ministers in all areas of service a very original study on ministerial and pastoral spirituality. Written from an ecumenical point of view, it presents today's questions from a conscious stand both within the context of minorities and people of color and within the confines of our post-Christian culture and the crisis issues of our time." Cyprian Davis, O.S.B., St. Meinrad Archabbey, St. Meinrad, IN
Sinossi: Help for a ministry gone stale.
Christianity is facing a crisis of preaching, a crisis of evangelization, and a crisis of morality; the result is a ministry that's lost all life. In this new book, prominent theologian Kortright Davis shouts a wake-up call to all Christian ministers, both ordained and lay, of every denomination. With apostolic intensity, he challenges traditional concepts of leadership and service and proposes radical new approaches to restore the vigor to ministry in this post-modern age.
Serving with Power identifies seven areas of crisis common to the whole Church. Its solutions can transform all denominations while at the same time renew the strengths inherent in each. Davis' work draws from the richness of his Afro-American heritage, from a wide range of contemporary theologians and spiritual writers, and from such recent historical events as the post-apartheid South Africa and the deaths of Princess Diana and Mother Teresa. Yet the book is always firmly rooted in the Biblical imperative to proclaim the Gospel.
This dynamic work will revitalize priests, ministers, deacons, lay ministers, bishops, social activists, and theological educators.
