Laity in Christian History and Today

By Kenneth Hylson-Smith
Out of Stock
The Laity in Christian History and Today offers a fascinating account of the part played by
ordinary Christians in the life and witness of the churches. The important role of the laity has
often been overlooked and their story has largely gone untold. Here, Kenneth Hylson-Smith
considers the part played by the laity from the earliest communities in the New Testament to
the present.
The book highlights lay people’s achievements and explores the potential that exists for
revitalising the church if the laity are fully mobilized and, alongside clergy, are given full
opportunity for exercising their ministry.
