Many Presbyterians have never thought through what stands at the very heart of presbyterianism: The church's organization both locally and on a wider scale.
This booklet is a basic introduction to Presbyterian church government, examining it in light of the example set by Christ and his headship. Useful for new members, officer-training classes, and those investigating presbyterians for the first time, this biblical look at the church and its function in the world can hep to meet the deep needs of our postmodern generation.
