Apostolic Succession

Dr. Leithart has made a couple of brief but nice posts on a subject that deserves more attention from Protestant theologians who are interested in more catholicity. Too often for members of churches who place their priestly genealogies in high importance, apostolic succession becomes a refuge to hide behind when faced with tough theological questions. "Oh yeah? Well you're not a real church anyway, and we are. See our pedigree?"

Here are the original posts:
