Abstract: 

Braaten asserts that theological education can become an auxiliary of the teaching offices of the church only as it subordinates itself to the apostolic canon of Scripture. He calls for a renewed principle of conciliarity in which the apostolic message is redefined, the episcopal ministry is recovered, and charismatic movements are acknowledged for a creative interplay of official authority, canonical witness, and spiritual power.
