This is a handbook for pastors, elders, and all Christians who want to see how Scripture presents the process of discipline that should operate in the Christian community. It was written in response to the various concerns that threaten to tear apart marriages, families, friendships, and congregations--concerns that call for a biblical approach to discipline that can heal fractures, restore right relationship, and ensure the health of the church. Developed around the five corrective steps found especially in Matthew 18:15-17, this book helps church leaders deal with the sorts of problems that require the churchs disciplinary response. Charting a course that combines discernment with appropriate action, this simple, readable handbook can have a profound effect on the community of believers.

Joshua Cotteen5 Stars Out Of 5October 3, 2008Joshua CotteenThis is an amazing book for everyone. I believe it's more for pastors/elders do to what it talks about, but it's also for the Christian who attends church. Because the first few steps to Church Discipline is one on one with the person who has sinned, then one on one with two witnesses. So it's important that every Christian knows how to do those first few steps and then also how to bring it before the church. So I would recommend it to every Christian who needs help in this area and for pastors/elders for want to know how to do Church Discipline in a Biblical way.
