Product Description

When Christians fall into sin, how can we restore them? How can we bring them back into the fellowship with more than a superficial apology? These are vital questions, but so often churches stumble at this critical point. Either we ignore the wrongdoing or we banish the wrongdoer. The authors of this groundbreaking book provide a new model for church discipline with the spiritual care team, a small group of mature Christians who voluntarily commit themselves to support and guide a person with special spiritual needs through a process of restoration. In these pages you will find practical guidance on how to form a spiritual care team, how to support the spouse and family of the person being restored, how to integrate professional helpers and the church into the process, and how to provide ongoing care when the main work of the team is complete.

Publisher's Description

When brothers and sisters in Christ fall into sin, how should the church respond? Very often, Christians stumble in their attempt to address this issue. Either they ignore the wrongdoing or they banish the wrongdoer. The authors of this groundbreaking book advocate another way: the spiritual care team. A spiritual care team is a small group of mature Christians who voluntarily commit themselves to support and guide another through the process of repentance and restoration. This community-based and community-oriented approach emphasizes the importance of acknowledging sin, making repentance complete and reestablishing personal spiritual discipline. Restoring the Fallen offers practical guidance on how to form a spiritual care team, as well as how to support the spouse and family of the one working through the process of restoration, how professional helpers and the whole church body might contribute to restoration, and how to provide ongoing care after the main work of the spiritual care team is complete. It is an essential book for pastors, counselors and church leaders.

    I can speak from personal experience that the Friesen's are the greatest gift to my marriage restored. I am 57 days into a new life with a new wife who has lived in the darkness for the last five years and is now home. This book helped us understand the evil that is adultery and how pervasive it can be. If you are a Christian or seeking and are suffering through a broken marriage this book is the answer you are looking for.

    Earl Wilson shares, from his own experience, along with his wife and two couples from the restoration team, the value they found in a caring team of Christians supporting Earl and his family. There is emphasis on the fallen, on not just being forgiven, but being wholly honest to himself and others, and then taking the time to be fully restored, and not just reinstated. It urges confronting, in love, to be sure the person will know that they will be held accountable, and to help them to stay on track. Although this book deals with sexual sinning, the principles are applicable to other sinful behavior as well. The last paragraph was disappointing, and seemed, in some ways, to contradict the theme of total honesty precluding full restoration, but overall I liked the book a lot.
