Publisher's Description

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
