Publisher's Description

To rediscover God's gift of eldership for the church today, we need to go back beyond the New Testament to the origins of the office of elder in ancient Israel. There we discover the enduring principles that guided the elder in antiquity - and that guide the church today. In this book you will develop a renewed understanding of the office of elder and of godly discipline,

    I have read numerous elder books and many by Presbyterians like Van Dam. I do think Van Dam adds to our understanding of the role of elder by surveying the OT, despite the office purely being a NT establishment by our Lord. This is useful. What bothered me about the book was Van Dam's repeated attempt to draw a hard and fast line between the office of "ruling" and "teaching" elder, going so far as to declare them separate offices. While the terms are used for convenience by many if not most Presbyterians I have not found another writer willing to take such a strong stand. I wish he wouldn't have. I do not believe it adds to a healthy, biblical understanding of ecclesiology.
