The Elder (Explorations In Biblical Theology Series)

The Elder (Explorations In Biblical Theology Series)

$25.99

Paperback
The eldership is a very old and wonderful gift of God to his people. This book paints the grand biblical narrative of this office from its beginnings in the Old Testament. Today's church cannot afford to ignore God's instructions for the functioning of this office. It continues to be God's blessing today - but only if understood and enacted according to his pattern.

^^- a 'must' for Elders or those about to become Elders - deculturalizes the office - attends to OT texts relating to the office - addresses how to develop Elders in office - shows helpful disciplinary guidance

^^Rooted in the deep soil of Reformed faith and practice, Rediscovering the Elder is also a treasure at a time when much gets lost these days in translation from theory to practice. I heartily recommend this book for current elders, elders-in-training, aspiring elders, and those who seek to be blessed by their labors.
^^^Michael Horton

^^Cornelis Van Dam provides a full and intelligent discussion of the biblical texts that inform our understanding of the office of the elder in the church today. This book is a must for those who are elders or who think they might be called to that office.
^^^Tremper Longman III
