Product Description

Church discipline is a term fraught with problems for the church today. However, the biblical witness is clear that it is an essential component of a healthy, God-honoring church-a church were Christians grow and mature in grace and develop solid foundations with which they can, with the help of the Spirit, withstand the storms of life.

With many years of pastoral experience, Robert K. Cheong has faced this issue many times. In God redeeming His Bride he interviews over 30 pastors from different countries and a wide variety of church settings. Using this data he brings unprecedented breadth and depth of experience to a highly sensitive issue.

Endorsements

May the Lord use it to help us, as his church, become the beautiful bride she was purchased to be.
-Stephen Timmis, Director of Acts 29 Network in Western Europe.

Many churches are realizing that their weakness stems in part from a failure to follow what the scriptures teach about church discipline. Robert Cheong’s book is a wonderfully practical and refreshingly gracious treatment of the topic.
-Thomas R. Schreiner,
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky

One of the most painful things to do as a pastor is to teach and lead out in the discipline of the church. We need courage. This book helps encourage us as we obey the call for the purity of the gospel through the local church.
-Darrin Patrick,
Lead Pastor of The Journey, St. Louis, Missouri

How we engage sin in the church reflects our view of God and His redemptive character. God Redeeming His Bride is a timely addition to any pastor’s--or church member for that matter – field manual for real-life ministry.
-Ed Stetzer,
President, LifeWay Research, Nashville, Tennessee

Robert Cheong shows how biblical church discipline is rooted in God’s mission to bring redemption to sinners and sufferers through the work of Jesus proclaimed by the church. We see how God calls his church to participate in his relentless, loving pursuit of his people. Filled with Christ-centred theology, gracious wisdom, and practical advice, this handbook is highly recommended for pastors and ministry leaders.
-Justin Holcomb,
Lead Pastor, Mars Hill Church U-District, Seattle, Washington,

As difficult and painful as it can be, church discipline is a crucial obligation that Jesus has given to us as his people. But how do you do it? As a pastor, how do you both care for those who are in sin and at the same time lead the church as a whole to exercise its duty to exercise discipline? And why is church discipline necessary in the first place? These are some of the questions that Robert Cheong addresses in his book God Redeeming His Bride. Setting the concept of church discipline in the context of the Gospel and God’s work of redemption, Cheong gives highly practical advice about every step in the process-- encouraging and teaching along the way.
-Greg Gilbert,
Senior Pastor, Third Avenue Baptist Church, Louisville, Kentucky

It is one thing to believe, in theory, in what God says in the Bible about the necessity of church discipline. It is another thing altogether to know how to navigate the process in the case of an unrepentant, falling church member. In this book, Robert Cheong, with biblical brilliance and pastoral compassion, provides a model for churches and leaders.
-Russell D. Moore,
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky

Eminently practical while deeply theological, this gospel-centered approach to church discipline is a ground-breaking book that every pastor and every church leadership team should read and apply.
...a treasure-trove of grace, wisdom, and gospel truths regarding the difficult topic of church discipline, drawn from a pastor's hard-earned experience with the reality of sin and the power of the gospel.
Robert Cheong's contribution is unique, then, for its breadth: it is scripturally rich, theologically robust, narratively engaging, practically saturated, and ecclesially helpful. It is also unique because its author, a scholar pastor, has been engaged in hundreds of church discipline cases either personally or by means of counseling and training others, so his book reflects a wisdom forged through experience.
...a timely addition to any pastor's - or church member for that matter-field manual for real-life ministry.

The subject of church discipline is no walk in the park. People's lives hang in the balance. My friend Robert clearly shows that church discipline is an integral part of gospel centered ministry both theologically and practically. He provides a step by step guide so that the reader understands not only what discipline is but how to go about it. In the process, he gives us a model for the body of Christ ministering to one another in the grace, compassion, and humility characteristic of the gospel. This is a must read for every pastor.
"One of the most painful things to do as a pastor is to teach and lead out in the discipline of the church. We need courage. This book helps encourage us as we obey the call for the purity of the gospel through the local church."
It has taken courage for Robert Cheong to write this book. He is knowingly wading into an area of much confusion and regret in churches. Church discipline is a ministry which, even if it is done well, it can be a painful experience for all involved. So it also takes the heart of a shepherd to speak to those leading through church discipline or living somewhere in it. Robert has the courage and shepherd's heart - and the Gospel clarity - to help us all in difficult times where church discipline is the redemptive way ahead.
"Eminently practical while deeply theological, this gospel-centered approach to church discipline is a ground-breaking book that every pastor and every church leadership team should read and apply."
I appreciate this book for three reasons. First, it's theologically rich, anchoring church discipline in the glorious drama of God's redeeming work. Second, it's pastorally wise, written by a seasoned shepherd who knows the joy and pain of leading and protecting the flock. And third, it's practically helpful - the appendices alone are worth the price of the book. Robert's work on this important subject is a gift to every gospel-loving church leader and church member.
"a treasure-trove of grace, wisdom, and gospel truths regarding the difficult topic of church discipline, drawn from a pastor's hard-earned experience with the reality of sin and the power of the gospel."
It was impossible for me to read this book without being personally convicted by my lack of faithfulness to live out the radical love of Jesus in the context of a community on mission. My failure to pursue people who have sinned and hurt the church was shown to be significant. Additionally, the book is full of sage advice on exactly HOW to walk through the rigors of church discipline. The day after I read it, I found myself quoting it several times. It's hard for me to imagine someone writing a more helpful, practical, gospel-centered book on church discipline.
God Redeeming His Bride is one of the best tools available to the church today that can help us recover the critical and pastoral practice of church discipline. Robert Cheong proves himself to be a modern day Richard Baxter as he has given us a thoroughly biblical, deeply theological, eminently practical, and easily accessible book I believe God will use to bring greater health to our local churches.
"a timely addition to any pastor's - or church member for that matter-field manual for real-life ministry."
