Listen to a sermon by Mark Dever entitled A Biblical Understanding of the Gospel.

We have called this book The Deliberate Church because we wanted a title that might serve to throw us into the fray of the church methodology debates. American evangelicalism is now dripping with various kinds of churches: The Emerging Church, The Purpose Driven Church , The Connecting Church, The Disciple-Making Church a critical assessment called the The Market Driven Church, and almost any other kind of church you could possibly want. We thought keeping the format of "The _______ Church" for a title might get our foot in the door of the debate. "Deliberate" is the best word we could find to succinctly describe what we're talking about. But its mainly a title that (hopefully)will get us in on the conversation so that we can hold up a way of doing things that actually has been recovered from centuries past--a church driven and governed by the Gospel. Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, D.C., has been the laboratory for testing these ideas over the last ten years. What follows, then, are applications of these principles that have proven fruitful and encouraging in our context. They are not intended to be taken as either exhaustive or exclusive, but simply as an attempt to revive a warm conversation about how we feed, lead, and protect the flock of God.

Includes a Foreword by D. A. Carson
