Product Description

"As we enter the twenty-first century we face tremendous challenges. There are quesitons about biblical authority and about who should be allowed to be church officers. We will need courage to work for justice and peace in an increasingly violent world; we will need to see ourselves as parts of a global economy and an ecumenical and interfaith world, spreading the good news in a wired and webbed world. All of these things will challenge our ability to embrace the traditions that made us what we are, while attempting to move faithfully and creatively into a new century." This is the ideal handbook for Presbyterian church officers, including elders, deacons, trustees, and pastors. Perfect as a text for officer training events, this book can also serve as a handy reference and guide, one that every Presbyterian church leader will want to keep nearby.
