Excerpt


Conflict abounds in the church of Jesus Christ. Reconciliation within the body, however, will not happen with the right "method" or "set of principles." In Making Peace, readers are challenged to place their church and all of its dissension under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Making Peace is a "why" book, not a "how-to" book. The lordship of Jesus Christ, not method, should be the object and subject of your search for answers. The promise of Scripture is that God will allow nothing into your life that you are not able to bear through faith in Him. Whatever conflict or crisis your church may now be facing, God will provide a way out or a way through for your good and His glory.

Excerpt


"The cruelest thing we can do is to let people remain in their sin when there is liberty to be lived."
Ronnie W. Rogers
"Pastor Ronnie Rogers' superb volume on discipline...has provided the most detailed study that to my knowledge has been written in recent years."
Dr. Paige Patterson, President of Southwestern Seminary
"Writing as a biblical theologian, Ronnie Rogers establishes the foundation for church discipline...But Ronnie writes also as an experienced pastor who has faithfully and compassionately worked out the biblical teaching on church discipline in real life."
Dr. Richard Wells, Distinguished Professor of Pastoral Theology at the Criswell College and Senior Pastor of South Canyon Baptist Church , Rapid City, SD
"It's hypocrisy for a local church to claim to believe the Bible and then willingly ignore the Bible's teaching on church discipline. It's refreshing to see a local church pastor like Ronnie Rogers cry out so clearly against the apathy and disobedience that prevails in most churches on this issue."
Dr. Donald S. Whitney, Associate Professor of Spiritual Formation, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

Excerpt


John Armstrong is a pastor who has served the church through good times and difficult times for nearly thirty years. On the subject of sexual in the church, he has done his homework, and the light of scriptural exegesis, church history and careful reason illuminates the discussion. He rightly rejects the flawed reasoning that argues for restoration as a function of forgiveness. He also exposes the faulty reductionism of imagining that "adultery is like any other sin" and the common thinking that restored pastors can become better pastors--"wounded healers" who are in touch with their people and more compassionate.

Excerpt


When Steeples Cry is a book about embodiment, yours and mine. It is not meant to be a "how-to-book," but it envisions you being a different kind of leader to your community. Written primarily, but not exclusively, for church leaders and those seminarians who will serve in mainline Protestant churches, When Steeples Cry identifies the work of mourning as a significant aspect of being a church leader in North America today. Leading your congregation towards gratitude, gladness, and praise, to rebuild ruins and to be a "tree of righteousness" is a difficult call. This book explores the diverse nature of loss occurring in North American church contexts: numerical, relationship, material, identity, functional, role, and systemic losses, and suggests how to grieve loss well and move on from it in healthy, life-giving ways.
