Dever, the long-time pastor at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC, has enlisted the help of other pastors and teachers in producing smaller volumes that address each of those nine marks. Each book in the series can be of quick assistance to churches in the process of reform. They raise questions, generate thoughts, and present challenges, but they offer few substantive answers. Lay leaders are probably the ones who would most benefit from them because they create an awareness of what a healthy local church should look like. They are easy reads and doctrinally sound, although one regrets that they do not go deeper. Some of these volumes have been of greater value to this reviewer than others. In terms of its content, this present work, "Sound Doctrine," would fall somewhere in the middle. While presenting the necessity for the proclamation and foundation of sound theology within the local church, it does so in a pretty basic ("low shelf") way that tends to frustrate those readers who are looking for more. This book has its place in a set that strives for brevity, but as with most in the series it might have been more accurately marketed as a "handbook."
