The Priesthood of All Believers and the Missio Dei
A Canonical, Catholic, and Contextual Perspective
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Through union with Christ, all believers are ordained to his royal priesthood to serve in the eschatological temple and offer spiritual sacrifices. Hank Voss does a masterful job of presenting and defending this doctrine through careful exegesis of the biblical texts, setting 'priesthood' in the larger context of biblical theology, and showing how the priesthood of all believers has been understood, misunderstood, and often neglected in the history of the church. The implications of this study are profound for the life of the community of God's people. All pastors and church leaders should read this book as a lens to help reevaluate how they do ministry."
--Clinton E. Arnold, Dean and Professor of New Testament, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University
"At a time when narcissism and schism seek to undermine our church life, it is important to rediscover the biblical perspective of the universal priesthood of all believers in the context of God's grand design for his people. Dr. Voss's insightful text provides a clear path to avoid the lethal effects of individualism, and to develop a vital spiritual formation that will inevitably lead to healthy spirituality and effective ministry in the church."
