As One with Authority: Reflective Leadership in Ministry
Jackson Carroll focuses on reclaiming a healthy understanding of authority in the church by reviewing the meaning and foundation of clergy authority and examining how his authority has been used and abused. Carroll asks how a sense of clergy authority might be recovered--one that honors shared ministry among clergy and lay leaders while it appreciates the distinctive leadership tasks of each clergyperson. To recover this sense, Carroll proposes a model of reflective leadership and uses practical examples to illustrate this method.
