Product Description

In an age of professional ministers who seem to be influenced more by the experiences of successful C.E.O.s than by the biblical model of eldership, Strauch's work is remarkably important. Strauch thoroughly explores the Biblical model for eldership and carefully explains how a renewed focus on eldership is an essential component of a revitalized church. Quite simply, Biblical Eldership will help you understand what the Bible has to say about Christian leadership.

Publisher's Description

In order to define biblical eldership, we must go back to the only God-given, authoritative source, the text of Holy Scripture. Church history demonstrates the disastrous consequences of drifting from the light of Scripture. This book fulfills the need for an in-depth study on the topic, based in the vast treasure of God's Word.

    Because our church is anticipating the transition from a pastor-deacon structure to an elder-led form of government, I was drawn to this book. Alexander Strauch has compiled an outstanding biblical theology of church eldership, surveying all of the major New Testament texts related to this topic. In reading its nearly-300 pages, I could help but seeing this volume as a helpful text for a seminary course on church polity. Having said that, however, it serves more of an introduction to the topic rather than a heavy treatise. Strauch does a commendable job of shattering traditional models of church leadership, while issuing an urgent call to restore the biblical pattern that has virtually been forgotten in many congregations and denominations. Therefore, prospective elders would be well served to read it before actually seeking or serving as an elder. It is packed with scriptural support and is well annotated. I was personally disappointed, however, that the author did not devote a chapter to the subject of transitioning into a elder-led structure from the more traditional paradigms that have characterized the western church for the past two centuries. Having said that, this is a helpful volume for those seeking a return to the apostolic model.

    This book gives an excellent overview of what Biblical Eldership should look like in the church. I feel every church should have this for required reading for Decons and Elders.

    This is a tremendously complete study and analisis of the Biblical plan for the Overseers and Teachers in our evangelical churches here in thr USA. The teaching of the philosophy of democracy for government, initiated in this land and so successfull as originally practised, has never been God's way for His people of Israel or His' Church. Theocracy through a CHOSEN leader advised and acountable to him by a group of Elders ( Moses, David, Uzziah, etc. Paul, Timothy, Titus etc. in the N.T.)was always God's Plan. We need to get back to where we should be in 21st. Centuary America.
