Abstract

Editorial 7 © 2005 SAGE Publications (London, Thousand Oaks CA and New Delhi) Editorial Presbyters, Bishops and Holy Order cclesiology is intended to be useful to clergy, pastors and lay ministers, as well as to academics, students and teachers of theology. That is a tall order and it would be easy to fall between two stools: too remote for practitioners, too basic for scholars. However, it is the conviction of the editors and publishers of Ecclesiology that this dream ticket can be achieved. Scholarly theological writing, grounded in original research and creative thinking, does not have to be jargon- laden, impenetrable and boring. On the other hand, the resource needs of pastors are not met by patronising them with Noddy guides that carry little intellectual challenge. Thankfully, there are many scholarly-minded pastors and many pastoral- hearted scholars: pastors who are being stretched by the demands of their people for solid but imaginative biblical and theological teaching and scholars who seek to relate their studies to the down-to-earth needs of ordinary Christians. However, the proof of the pudding is in the eating. This second issue, the first of our regular themed issues, is something of a test case. Certainly
