Ministry review : a biblical and theological rationale by Hazel Whitehead( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The thesis is that there may be sufficient evidence within Scripture and the Tradition of the Church to provide an apologia for Ministry Review which will inform those who are to be reviewed and those who conduct reviews. The respondent field is clergy from the diocese of Guildford but complementary evidence comes from national reports and other literature. Proving the thesis will have local and national benefits because it will enable the Church to articulate a better, theological purpose for engaging in the process. -- Chapter 1 explains the purpose of the research and describes the local, diocesan context. -- Chapter 2 sets this local data within a wider, national context including the Ordinal and the nature of priesthood. -- Chapter 3 includes sections on the research methodology (which is to use a questionnaire addressed to diocesan clergy and a supplementary questionnaire for the Reviewers), the Literature Review, ethical considerations and a summary analysis of the data. This demonstrates that, though there is some useful, relevant material it is insufficient for the theological purposes of the Church. -- Chapter 4 argues that the scriptural texts cited can contribute to a theological rationale and, after providing a brief description of all the texts, analyses Exodus 3 and Revelation 2 - 3 in more detail. Three emerging themes are used to demonstrate how the process of Review could be reframed. -- Chapter 5 attends to the Tradition of the Church and refers to the work and life of St. Benedict, Richard Baxter and Charles Simeon to demonstrate that there are aspects of the Church's history which can inform Review. -- The Evaluation and Conclusion argues that the thesis has been proved, whilst recognising the limitations imposed through time and space. A series of suggestions is made for reframing the Review process for the diocesan and national Church
