An Urgent Call to Restore Biblical Church Leadership
Now in it's twenty-third printing and with more than 150,000 copies sold, this comprehensive look at the role and function of elders brings all the advantages of shared leadership into focus. Beginning with the four broad categories of eldership (leading, feeding, caring, and protecting), Biblical Eldership explores the essential work of elders, their qualifications (including why qualifications are necessary), their relationships with each other, and each of the biblical passages related to eldership.
Written for those seeking a clear understanding of the mandate for biblical eldership, this book defines it accurately, practically, and according to Scripture.
In an age of professional ministers who seem to be influenced more by the experiences of successful C.E.O.s than by the biblical model of eldership, Strauch's work is remarkably important.
