Here I Am, Lord, Send Me
Ritual and Narrative for a Theology of Presbyterial Ordination in the Reformed Tradition
Imprint: Resource Publications
"Here I Am, Lord, Send Me offers analysis and answers drawn from liturgical theology, ritual studies, and narrative theory tested by grassroots congregational life. Presa offers a vital vision of unity with difference, shaped by tradition and hope. He traces the holy/human relationship of ordination that carries the three marks of Scripture, sacrament, and ethics, and highlights the significance of the Reformation contribution to the holy catholic church of Jesus Christ."
