Keepers of the Word : Leadership in the Early Church

Stewards, Prophets, Keepers of the Word : Leadership in the Early Church. by Ritva H. Williams.

I have published two books, one primarily for a scholarly audience; Stewards, Prophets, Keepers of the Word: Leadership in the Early Church (2006). My other book is entitled The Bible's Importance for the Church Today (2009). This book would be interesting for both church leaders and lay people. More information about this book here.

Williams approaches the subject of leadership in the early church through an examination of the social and cultural customs of the Greco-Roman civilization during the first and second centuries. There is much to recommend regarding this book’s discussion of stewards and prophets. First, Williams lays a foundation, describing the Greco-Roman patron-client social paradigm. She takes great effort to describe how the patron-client model is evident in the gospel narratives of Jesus and in the teaching and the plots of his parables.

Rick Wade surveys the history of persecution of the early church and the Roman emperors behind it. He considers how it may come within our society but would not be the end of Christ's church. The Da Vinci Code and related contemporary non-fiction books make the claim that Christianity was a hodge podge of beliefs taken from other pagan religious traditions.

This book looks in detail at Paul's description of apostles in 1 Corinthians 4 and 9 as divinely appointed administrators (oikonomoi) . The pastoral epistles state that a person aspiring to church leadership is to be μιας γυναικός άνήρ. The meaning of this phrase is disputed.

This book looks in detail at Paul's description of apostles in 1 Corinthians 4 and 9 as divinely appointed administrators (oikonomoi) and considers what this tells us about the nature of his own apostolic authority. John Goodrich investigates the origin of this metaphor in light of ancient regal, municipal and private administration, initially examining the numerous domains in which oikonomoi were appointed in the Graeco-Roman world, before situating the image in the private commercial context of Roman Corinth.

Steward, prophet, keeper of the word--these three roles reflect the hierarchical social structures, religious experience, and faithfulness to tradition found in ancient Mediterranean cultures, and, as Ritva Williams argues, influenced the development of early Christianity. The linear progression of leadership (apostles to bishops or apostles to presbyters or charismatics to office holders, etc.) commonly held to have emerged in the early church does not appear in early Christian texts from the mid-first to early second centuries. Instead, what these texts reveal is a variety, diversity, and plurality of ways that Christ-followers adopted and adapted these dynamic roles from antiquity as they struggled to organize and live in their local situations.
