Product Description

What does Scripture say about church government? Disagreements over this issue once split denominations---but few 21st-century Christians have a solid understanding of the principles that determine their own church leadership. This illuminating collection presents and critiques four approaches: Episcopalianism, Presbyterianism, Single-Elder Congregationalism, and Plural-Elder Congregationalism. A fair and balanced overview. 320 pages, softcover from Zondervan.
