"[By] Paul Avis".
Includes bibliographical references (p. 133-141) and index.
"Adrian Hastings saw the main theme of Archbishop Runcie's primacy as the search for an appropriate Anglican style of authority. Avis himself wrote in 1986. 'Dissatisfaction with the Church of England centres on the question of authority'. The lust for infallible authorities seems to grow rather than be outgrown. And it is not only in Anglicanism, or the churches in general, that authority questions are of vital contemporary importance". -- Foreword.
In this book "I attempt to set up a dialogue between biblical and theological views of authority, on the one hand, and what the social sciences and management studies can teach us on the other. .... In this book I am wrestling with the three specific themes of liberating authority, therapeutic leadership and constructive conflict". -- Preface.
Contents: Foreword by the Archbishop of York / John Ebor i.e. Habgood -- Preface dated 4 April 1991 / Paul Avis -- Leadership and Authority in Today's Church -- The Power and the Glory -- Authority and Enlightenment -- The Thirst for Authority -- Sacred Status and the Bureaucratic Church -- Charisma and Spiritual Power -- Open Society: Open Church -- Learning for Leadership -- The Art of Leadership -- Harnessing Conflict -- Bibliography -- Index of Names.

"There is, it seems, no safe place to have genuine dialogue about matters of race, gender, and power. The situation prevails despite a desire for something different. In communities of faith throughout the United States there is a genuine yearning to become a living vision of God's peaceable kingdom". -- Foreword, p. ix.
"Wherever we are, I invite us to begin the journey of transformation with some behavioral guidelines for noticing, understanding, and celebrating differences. The guidelines I present in the first chapter are meant to function as signposts or rules of the road. At times when our differences seem overwhelming, they ensure that we can speak and act in ways that will honor who we are in all our uniqueness. I believe these guidelines are both simple and profound ... Every conflict I have been part of, small or large, can be traced to the violation of one of these guidelines. Most often the violation includes denying that significant differences exist or seeing differences as 'greater than' or 'less than'." -- Preface, p.xxvii-xxviii.

This book "draws on conversations from women from around the world as it seeks to consider women, gender and diakonia. Moving through traditional definitions of diakonia -- Christian service -- and seeking to re-discover what the Bible has to say about women and Christian service, it offers some signposts for the journey ahead, as men and women seek to nurture and share life in community. Each chapter offers discussion starters in order to help individuals and groups to consider the issues raised. It challenges all who read it to take action and to seek to encourage new and more positive ways of looking at the service offered by women today" -- back cover.

"Edited by Deenabandhu Manchala".
Includes bibliographical references.
"This book synthesizes the reflections and experiences of some one hundred theologians, social scientists, social activists and church leaders from all parts of the world who participated in a process of theological reflection on overcoming violence over a period of three years. A number of institutions and organisations have also offered their expertise and logistical support to the four consultations in Cret-Berard, Chiang Mai, Kigali and Oslo .... A small group of theologians were called by Faith and Order to facilitate this process and articulate these reflections into this cohesive form. .... Documents from this process of theological reflection on overcoming violence can be downloaded at: http://wcc-coe.org/wcc/what/faith/nurturingpeace.html." -- Acknowledgements.
"This book presents and discusses some of the insights and challenges emerging from these processes as an offering to the churches and Christians everywhere. The members of the core group participated directly in some of these events, and exchanged and discussed reports and papers while accompanying the process. In July 2005, they met together in Geneva and identified three theological challenges for the churches and the ecumenical movement to consider as they participate in the Decade to Overcome Violence. The following chapters unpack some of the implications of these challenges". -- Intro., p. 7.

Notes
Social worker Mary Wells, one of Canada's leaders on sexual abuse, talks about abuse and the church. "She explains that sexual misconduct and abuse of power are one and the same. And, she says, the church's structures, perpetuate the secrecy which allows abuse to continue undiscovered. `We have to look at how our structures reinforce the use of power and control to silence (abuse victims) rather than encourage them to come forward,' she says. `We are maintaining these structures, while mouthing the opposite'." "Although the church has made giant strides in dealing with sexual abuse, it still faces major challenges, she says".
