D. Kevin Brown
From this topic, treated very briefly, Black writes of the need for Christians to take part in ministry. "But if we take seriously the idea that every member is a minister and that the clergy-laity distinction is unscriptural, then it follows that we cannot limit theological education to a select few" (loc 234 ).
Works for further reading offer a more comprehensive discussion of the substantial topic, (several of them Black's other books). The brief treatment here prompts significant questions, such as whether Christians should be passive, whether abstinence from politics isn't a condonation of actions of the politically active, and whether Christians can testify to God's benevolence without supporting social programs.
