Perspectives on Church Government presents in counterpoint form the basic models of church government which have developed over the course of church history with a view toward determining which is most faithful to Scripture. Each chapter will be written by a prominent person from within each tradition—with specific guidelines dealing with the biblical, historical, and theological issues within each governance tradition. In addition, each writer will have the opportunity to give a brief response to the other traditions.

Danielle Kahut4 Stars Out Of 5February 8, 2008Danielle KahutThis book presents an interesting view into the various perspectives on church government. The disappointment comes when the authors are not given a chance to respond to the criticisms they receive (located at the end of each chapter). The counterpoint series is much better in this regard. However, great book for overall understanding of church government.
