The Priesthood of All Believers and the Missio Dei: A by Hank Voss,Daniel Treier

By Hank Voss,Daniel Treier

The priesthood of all believers is a pillar undergirding Protestant ecclesiology. but the doctrine has usually been used to serve various agendas. This e-book examines the doctrine's canonical, catholic, and contextual dimensions. It first identifies the priesthood of all believers as a canonical doctrine established upon the royal priesthood of Christ and heavily relating to the believer's eschatological temple-service and delivering of religious sacrifices (chapters 1-3). It secondly describes its catholic improvement through reading 3 paradigmatic shifts, shifts particularly linked to Christendom (chapters 4-6) and a suppression of the doctrine's missional part. ultimately, the ebook argues Christian doctrine of the priesthood of all believers could be constructed with a Christocentric-Trinitarian figuring out of the missio Dei. this means there are particularly acceptable methods for the royal priesthood to narrate to the daddy, to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. A canonically and catholically educated priesthood of all believers leads contextually to specific ecclesial practices. those seven practices are 1) Baptism as public ordination to the royal priesthood; 2) Prayer; three) Lectio Divina; four) Ministry; five) Church self-discipline; 6) Proclamation; and seven) the Lord's Supper because the renewal of the royal priesthood.

"Through union with Christ, all believers are ordained to his royal priesthood to serve within the eschatological temple and provide religious sacrifices. Hank Voss does a masterful task of offering and protecting this doctrine via cautious exegesis of the biblical texts, surroundings 'priesthood' within the greater context of biblical theology, and exhibiting how the priesthood of all believers has been understood, misunderstood, and sometimes missed within the heritage of the church. The implications of this examine are profound for the lifetime of the group of God's people. All pastors and church leaders may still learn this publication as a lens to aid reevaluate how they do ministry."
--Clinton E. Arnold, Dean and Professor of recent testomony, Talbot university of Theology, Biola University

"At a time whilst narcissism and schism search to undermine our church lifestyles, it is very important rediscover the biblical standpoint of the common priesthood of all believers within the context of God's grand layout for his people. Dr. Voss's insightful textual content offers a transparent route to steer clear of the deadly results of individualism, and to boost a necessary religious formation that might unavoidably result in fit spirituality and potent ministry within the church."
