    Product Description

    Bishops, Moderators, Apostles, Regional Ministers - the range of titles given to those who exercise some form of translocal oversight of Christian communities in contemporary Britain is wide indeed. Together they represent a spectrum of response to a range of dynamics that include biblical foundations, received church tradition, present felt needs and the demands of the wider cultural context of contemporary life. In 'Episkope,' Standing and Goodliff, together with experienced church leaders drawn from across the churches, establish the common foundations that inform our conversations about translocal ministry and map present models and experience of ecclesial oversight. Building on these shared insights a variety of themes are explored that might help the selection, training and deployment of translocal ministry be fit for purpose in the changing cultural context that faces twenty-first century Christian communities. With contributions from: Anne Hollinghurst on gender and oversight, Stephen Cottrell on oversight within the Anglican context Diane Tidball on oversight in the Baptist church Terry Virgo on oversight in new church streams David Muir on oversight within black majority churches Ian Mobsby on oversight in new monastic communities
