Who Runs the Church? (Counterpoints Series)

Paul Engle (Ed)

$24.99

Paperback

Many Protestants, individually and denominationally, are divided by differences regarding the form of church government. While these differences are not necessarily as divisive as theological and doctrinal issues, they are significant to churches and church leaders and affect the way Christians do God's work. This book in the highly acclaimed Counterpoints series offers insights and contrasts into four kinds of church government: 1) episcopalianism (hierarchical, with priests, bishops, and archbishops), 2) presbyterianism (a representative form at multiple levels-church, classis/presbytery, synod/general assembly), 3) single-elder congregationalism (pastor-led local autonomy), and 4) plural-elder congregationalism (another form of local autonomy). Each form of government is explored through 1) description, 2) historical development, 3) hermeneutical assumptions, 4) biblical and theological foundations, 5) an understanding of the nature, number, and relationship of church officers, and 6) the practical implications.
