"Building Up the Body: One Man or One Another?" develops the New Testament practice of body life by examining key N.T. texts, and interacting primarily with the Puritan tradition, which focused on the one gift of "the Minister." The conclusion is that there is no NT basis for our fixation on "The Pastor" to the neglect of the 58 one-anothers in the NT. Also included is Judy Schindler's excellent article, "The Rise of One-Bishop-Rule in the Early Church: A Study of the Writings of Ignatius & Cyprian," and Jon Zens' "Several Proposition Set Forth as Encouragements to Practice Christian Love in Local Churches," plus a review of Robert Banks' "Paul's Idea of Community."
