:The local church is meant to embody the vibrant diversity of the global church, transcending racial, cultural, and economic boundaries. Yet local churches too often simply reflect the same societal divisions prevalent in our world today-making them more akin to social clubs filled with like-minded people than the supernatural community the New Testament prescribes. Pastors Mark Dever and Jamie Dunlop argue that authentic fellowship is made up of two crucial ingredients: commitment (depth) and diversity (breadth). Theologically rooted yet extremely practical, this book sets forth basic principles that will help pastors guide their churches toward the compelling community that we all long for.
Mark Dever (Ph.D., University of Cambridge) is Senior Pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, D.C. and Executive Director for 9 Marks Ministries. Dr. Dever has contributed to several books on church health and church leadership, and is a visiting professor at both Beeson Divinity School, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.
He has written What Is A Healthy Church?; 9 Marks Of A Healthy Church (Expanded 2004), The Deliberate Church, The Message of the Old Testament: Promises made, The Gospel and Personal Evangelism, The Message of the New Testament: Promises Kept, and Twelve Challenges Churches Face.
