"The book has more than historical interest for Anglicans. It has a distinct contribution to make to the doctrine of the church and the theology of minstry." -- James E. Griffiss Professor of Systematic Theology at Nashota House
"A classic theological study worthy of serious reading and thought. Ramsey's careful--often moving and beautiful--exposition of his 'underlying conviction' includes deep probing of the Bible, a survey of the unfolding understanding of Christ and the church, a profound insight into the being of the church as a dying and rising again with Christ, an appreciation of Eastern Orthodox thought, a testimonial to the positive intentions--even the necessity--of the Reformers, a theologically-grounded advocacy of renewed liturgical worship, and a passion for the reunion of all Christians." --Andrew F. Wissemann Bishop of Western Massachusetts from the Preface to the American Edition
