Description: Walter Lowrie's original work, reprinted here in its entirety, is a discussion of the question of ministry in terms of Church unity. Those commenting on this discussion, sometimes in agreement and sometimes contesting, speak from the viewpoint of four other traditions: Presbyterian, Congregationalist, Methodist and Eastern Orthodox. Quote from book (p. 24): The Christian priest, being called by God, acts for God on behalf of the people, not otherwise than does the prophet. It is common now to draw a sharp distinction between the priest and the prophet. But when we say priest or prophet we posit a false alternative. No such contrast is made either in the Old or in the New Testament.
