Excerpt from The Church and the Ministry in the Early Centuries: The Eighteenth Series of the Cunningham Lectures Dr. Moberly, in his eminently suggestive book, Ministerial Priesthood, has warned all students of early Church History to beware of mental presuppositions, unchallenged assumptions, hypotheses or postulates. The warning has been taken with all seriousness, even when the perusal of his book has suggested the thought that mental presuppositions, like sins, are more readily recognized in our neighbours than in ourselves. I feel bound to admit that three assumptions or postulates may be found underlying these lectures. Whether they are right or wrong the reader must judge.

In a time when the ordination of women is an ongoing and passionate debate, the study of women's ministry in the early church is a timely and significant one. There is much evidence from documents, doctrine, and artifacts that supports the acceptance of women as presbyters and deacons in the early church. While this evidence has been published previously, it has never before appeared in one complete English-language collection. With this book, church historians Kevin Madigan and Carolyn Osiek present fully translated literary, epigraphical, and canonical references to women in early church offices. Through these documents, Madigan and Osiek seek to understand who these women were and how they related to and were received by, the church through the sixth century. They chart women's participation in church office and their eventual exclusion from its leadership roles. The editors introduce each document with a detailed headnote that contextualizes the text and discusses specific issues of interpretation and meaning. They also provide bibliographical notes and cross-reference original texts. Madigan and Osiek assemble relevant material from both Western and Eastern Christendom.

Author Ronald Seaman is writing Churchianity as a solemn and compelling critique of the organized Christian Church. He highlights and explains the primary cause of most of the spiritual apathy which have characterized local churches since the Fourth Century. The root cause involves a fundamental change in church pastoral ministry which the author believes has produced disastrous spiritual results through the centuries. The author portrays the young Christian Church in its first three centuries as prospering spiritually in spite of severe persecution. These early believers met informally in homes as to nurture and disciple each other, and enthusiastically evangelized everyone they met. Understandably, Satan was not happy. To frustrate and checkmate this spiritual vitality, the Devil devised a clever strategy. He took advantage of church leaders' willful disobedience of Biblical teaching. Read Churchianity and become acquainted with Satan's strategy and its success in transforming the vigor and enthusiasm of the Early Christian into the tragedy and sadness of ""spectator Christianity"", and consider and evaluate the author’s solution for restoring lay biblical pastoral ministry in local churches.

After a year of searching, Charles and Verna could not find a church primarily operating on basic first-century principles. Most churches are not traditional enough! After thirty-five years as a pastor, my denomination had steered me in an ineffective and unbiblical direction. We had become chaplains to the culture, rather prophets within it. Few churches seem to have a process and possibly the knowledge in how to make effective disciples. Development of five apostolic principles is encouraged. They really work! The first-century church was not perfect, but remarkably diverse in maintaining apostolic accountability and encouragement. How may churches develop autonomy, unity and cooperation in close geographical areas? First-century worship is difficult to find. A service is produced here that, hopefully, includes all essential principles. Dependent on the process of the group event, the group-based church proves to be the best way to achieve apostolic goals and to provide an easy way to minister in unity with other churches. Many personal experiences illustrate the point. Practical and effective development, in the authors experience, has resulted in the building of three new churches and a wide ministry of teaching.

Why is the Christian Church declining in numbers and effectiveness in the twenty-first century? In A Celtic Model of Ministry Jerry Doherty, experienced clergyman and Celtic scholar, shows that the decline is caused by a crisis of individualism, a crisis of faith, and a crisis of lifestyle. Doherty responds to these crises by providing a Celtic spirituality by way of ministry of early Celtic Christians in Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Brittany, and the Isle of Man. He provides a model for ministry today in the local congregation and a guideline for the successful future of the Church modeled after the early Celtic communities. Doherty applies the model in congregational development studies and ministry. He explores the problems that have caused the decline of the Church and how paradigms of ministry in current use are no longer adequate. In A Celtic Model of Ministry Doherty proposes that a new model for thinking and building ministry today, especially in the local congregation, may be found in early Celtic Christian communities. Churches need to be a spiritual center, a learning center, and a community center.A Celtic Model of Ministry uses Celtic spirituality in a practical way for ministry in the local congregation and is written primarily for professionals, clergy, and church workers but can be easily read by lay people.Chapters are ?A Crisis of Individualism,? ?The Solution: Community,? ?Celtic Spirituality and Community,? ?Creating Community,? ?A Crisis of Faith,? and ?A Crisis of Lifestyle.??A sensitive pastor, operating out of a rich parochial ministry, shaped by his Episcopal heritage, offers his diagnosis of the sickness affecting the Christian Church today. In the light of that diagnosis, he prescribes a potential cure. Drawing on his study of Celtic Christianity, he plumbs the past to find clues for the future. It was for me an expanding reading experience.? John Shelby Spong Retired Episcopal Bishop of Newark Author of Here I Stand: My Struggle for a Christianity of Integrity, Love, and Equality

Excerpt from The Government of the Church in the First Century: An Essay on the Beginnings of the Christian Ministry The Catholic Church bases her authority to teach and govern on the apostolic succession of her hierarchy. Christ founded a Church, and gave the apostles whom he placed over it certain ecclesiastical powers to be transmitted by them to their successors to the end of time. The ecclesiastical superiors of to-day claim to teach and rule, not by election or delegation of the faithful, but by a kind of spiritual descent instituted by Christ. In this age of political Liberalism and popular sovereignty, it is not surprising to find the Church assailed for her oligarchical constitution. Advanced Protestants would have the people supreme in the Church as in the State; while the modern rationalists would have us believe that our hierarchical jurisdiction is the effect of evolution and the growth of centuries, and that it was unknown and unheard of in the early Church. It is with a view to answering these difficulties that I propose to inquire into the government of the primitive Church, and to show that its constitution was, in principle, the same in the first century as it is in the twentieth. In the course of this essay the reader will notice some differences of detail between the ecclesiastical organization of our own day and that of apostolic times. That is only what we might expect; development in the details of organization was inevitable. The extent of this development is a subject of considerable domestic controversy in Catholic schools.

The first three centuries of the Christian faith were a period of missionary zeal, deep thought, and tribulation. In The Early Church (33–313): St. Peter, the Apostles, and Martyrs, Catholic historian and biblical expert James Papandrea dispels what he calls common “mythconceptions” about the early years of Christianity. Tracking the challenges of heresy and persecution throughout the period, Papandrea shines a spotlight on the earliest saints and explores the growth and development of the new Church. The first Apostles spread the message of Jesus Christ and were willing to suffer and die for their faith. The next generations of believers followed their example, producing inspiring martyrs including Polycarp, Justin, Perpetua, and Sebastian, and great thinkers such as Irenaeus, Tertullian, and Eusebius. In The Early Church (33–313), author and historian James Papandrea presents a clear account of the Church’s first three centuries and provides evidence to refute fourteen commonly held beliefs about the Catholic Church. You will learn: No money or power was attached to being a bishop or priest in the early Church. Christian holidays were not adaptations of pagan celebrations. Christians have never believed in an eternal life for souls without bodies. The doctrine of the Trinity was not forced upon the Church by Constantine, but rather was a belief from the beginning of Christianity. With clear explanation and inspiring stories, Papandrea sorts through what we do and don’t know about the early Church and enables Catholics and fellow Christians to make sense of the Church’s beginnings.
