Product Description

In his book, On Being Presbyterian, Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) pastor and seminary professor Sean Michael Lucas suggests that being Presbyterian means embracing distinctive beliefs, practices, and stories as one's own. As new members, church officers, and potential Presbyterians explore beliefs such as God as king over all of life, practices such as Presbyterian church government, and stories such as the founding of the PCA, they will understand and move to embrace this way of being Christian.

Written in a non-technical style, On Being Presbyterian is an unique resource for assimilating and equipping believers.

Editorial Reviews

At last a brief, popular introduction to Presbyterianism that I can put in the hands of Bible-believing, gospel-loving Presbyterians and other evangelicals interested in this part of the Christian family. Readable, sympathetic, and circumspect.
The people who fill Bible-believing Presbyterian churches increasingly have little Presbyterian background. Lucas provides a terrific resource to get everyone up to speed . . . highly readable.
Dr. Sean Lucas is a first rate scholar who writes with depth, breadth and passion for his topic. On Being Presbyterian is highly recommended for anyone who wants to explore Presbyterian traditions down to their roots.
May prove to be one of the most important Presbyterian books in our generation. . . . useful in training young and old, new Christian and old warrior, lay person and theologian, broad evangelical and lifetime Presbyterian.
Increasing numbers of Christians are seeking to transcend the spirituality of private preference and enter into meaningful community with other believers: past, present, and future. For conservative Presbyterians, Lucas provides a most helpful, inspiring account of both the what and the why of our church identity.
