Bishop Jamieson "tackles the fundamental problem facing outsiders when they become insiders, or revolutionaries when they win power: how may power be exercised for the good of the community, without slipping into the hierarchical attitudes of the past ? Her experiences of exercising the ministry of a bishop also leads her to another, related, question: how may power be exercised at all in a church of the poor, the marginalized and the outsider, in which power should be turned upside down ?" -- back cover.
