Notes
"While the character and responsibilities of the ministry of `overseers' (episkopoi) or bishops was still in a formative stage during the New Testament period, one can already see and understand the significance of the teaching role" (p. 192), especially as mentioned in Paul's Letters. The author, Episcopal Bishop of Los Angeles, discusses the New Testament and historical development of bishop as teacher and draws attention to the ordination liturgy when the bishop is asked "Will you guard the faith, unity and discipline of the Church ?" and "Will you boldly proclaim and interpret the Gospel of Christ ...?" "[B]ishops will feel the tension between those promises to, on the one hand, GUARD [in italics in text], and, on the other, BOLDLY PROCLAIM and INTERPRET [in italics in text]" (p. 197). Also discusses the case of Episcopal Bishop James Pike, whose views and "teaching" drew charges of heresy. Author's discussion raises questions re what is orthodoxy, core doctrine and personal opinion as opposed to teaching office. In the tension between "order, definition and identity, on the one hand and room for change, creativity and new understanding on the other", "the Anglican and Episcopal practice has been to allow for and value a rather large measure of freedom in thought and practice" (p. 208). "The bishop is a conservator but also an agent of change and new understanding if the faith is to be preserved. Respecting the tradition and institution, the bishop is also called to be among its prophets, helping others to see what they otherwise might not and might prefer no to see, not only in the society about them but in the Church itself" (p. 212). He concludes by stating his intention to be the "education bishop" for the diocese. "We do not in this space have the opportunity to explore all the challenges and opportunities which are available for Christian learning and teaching today. But bishops can begin again with themselves" (p. 213).

Includes bibliographical references.
"We write to you out of the deep concern kindled in our diocese and elsewhere in the Church by the 1998 Lambeth Resolution on Human Sexuality ... which rejected `homosexual practice as incompatible with Scripture' (Lambeth 1998, I.10.d), and later, by the insistence of some bishops that this resolution be implemented throughout the Anglican Communion, especially in the United States. We find no warrant of Scripture which would lead to the conclusion that `homosexual practices', as such, are violations of the conditions, attitudes or actions required for the reflection of God's love in a holy relationship". -- Intro., p. 4.

Notes
Bishop Borsch focuses on "aspects of change in the recent history of the Episcopal Church in the United States and more particularly on the responsibilities, challenges and opportunites of bishops within this Church. Still more specifically, I want to look at several of the ways in which the office of bishop is itself changing and at the role of bishops as agents of change as well as of continuity in faith and practice" -- p. 16.

"[By] Philip Turner".
Includes bibliographical endnotes.
"Philip Turner argues convincingly that our understanding of ethics is tied up with the way we structure our exchanges with other people, especially those involving sex, money and power. Turner insists that any viable approach to Christian social ethics must offer life-enhancing ways for us to arrange these important social exchanges of sex, money and power. [This book] looks to the Trinity as a sound theological model for guiding our social exchanges. In the Trinity we find a living example of mutual exchange, a pattern of giving and receiving by which we can establish ethical criteria for our exchanges in sex, money and power". -- back cover.
Contents: Preface / Philip Turner, General Theological Seminary -- Context -- Ethics and Sacrifice -- Revisionist Sex -- Real Sex -- Wealth, Poverty and Truth -- Power and Authority -- The Authority of Truth -- Notes.
Author is an Episcopal priest.
