Product Description

Jesus, in his ministry, received the empty, the broken, the lost and the diseased. Mark Lauterbach shows how compassion, mediated through a functioning body of believers, provides the answers to human waywardness and maintains the integrity of the church.

Although this is a book about church discipline, it is really about a spirit-empowered community. Mark uses real situations from his experience to help us turn principles into practice.

Editorial Reviews

'Mark Lauterbach's love for the Church is passionate and realistic. He has the courage to address her need for correction and the tough love to do it superbly.'
'...a biblically sensitive and pastorally wise book on a subject many people would just as soon forget about: accountability among Christians. True church discipline is not about reinforcing legalisms but rather nurturing believers with a covenanted community of faith.'
'I have never read a book like this or even close to this. Written with a rare combination of biblical insight, and seasoned compassion, born of many years "in the trenches" of local church leadership.'
