Abstract or Description

A chapter in an edited collection - The Study of Ministry,

This chapter
The chapter explores anthropology as a discipline committed to exploring what it means to be human. In so doing, it privileges the human, or social, over the apparent divine. An anthropology of ministry may contrive to do both, to hold in comfortable tension this world/other world.
