The journal containing my article by this name is now out. Mid America’s inaugural issue of Theology for Ministry came out just before Christmas. I have previously commented on some of my thoughts contained in this article.
This issue is varied in perspectives and strengths, I think. Here is a list of the contents other than my article:
Hershael York- Defending the new IMB policies/guidelines
Gerald Cowen- “Congregationalism and It’s Limits”
An argument for congregationalism and against elder rule. Account is not taken of a role for elders within a congregational setting
John Hammett- “Patterns of Leadership in Emerging Churches”
Earl Waggoner- “A Movement Toward a House Church Ecclesiology”
Jimmy Millikin- “The Nature of the Church- Local or Universal”
An argument against an idea of the universal church
Timothy Seal- “Church Discipline: Recovering the Lost Treasure”
J. D. Payne- “Ecclesiology: The Most Critical Issue in Church Planting Today”
Steve Gaines- “Worthy of Worship”
And an excerpt from E. C. Dargan, “Ecclesiology: A Study of the Churches” (1905)
As far as I can tell there is no information on Mid America’s website about the journal. If you wanted a copy you could contact the editor, Dr. Daryl Cornett.
