Kleinig, John W. The Ministry of the Spirit. Lutheran Theological Journal 36.1 (2002): 25-37
The Lutheran Church of Australia has been engaged in discussion on whether women may be ordained into the office of the public ministry. This question, however, presupposes that there is agreement on two even more basic theological issues. It assumes that there is such an office of ministry, and that the rite of ordination places a person into that office.
