Strategic thinking about ministry and mission has tended to focus on the challenges of communication and presentation.

Less attention has been paid to the effects that this thinking has on ministry.

There is an unacknowledged dilemma for churches insofar as they are caught between the challenge to re-shape ministry in response to cultural change and the belief that there are certain God-given, immutable foundations for ministerial order that must be retained.

Arguing that what is needed is a provisional approach to ministry which recognises that all forms of ministry are, and always have been a response to social and cultural context, this book brings theological and practical insight to bear on the question of ministry's provisionality.

In the end, it asks, is the only way through this dilemma a kind of Ecclesianarchy?
