A fascinating and unique work, it remains the one indispensable key to this rich and pluriform heritage for both the general reader and the student.

Sida 158 - Receive the Holy Ghost for the office and work of a Priest in the Church of God, now committed unto thee by the imposition of our hands. Whose sins thou dost forgive, they are forgiven; and whose sins thou dost retain, they are retained.
