Mark Dever draws from Paul's first letter to the Corinthians to tackle twelve major challenges facing the church today. As he presents each challenge, Dever provides ways for individuals and churches to respond biblically.
Mark Dever addresses twelve major challenges that faced the church in the first century and that still face the church today.
The church Paul had seen established in Corinth in the first century was young and full of life-and just as full of problems. No single church in the New Testament had so many and such a diversity of problems. The church was plagued by partisanship, pride, immorality, false teachers, super-spirituality-and the list goes on.
In his latest book Mark Dever, longtime pastor and leading authority on the subject of church health, tackles twelve challenges that confronted the church in first-century Corinth-and churches today, including: division, asceticism, disobedience, legalism, autonomy, thoughtlessness, selfishness, and decline. As he presents each challenge, Dever provides ways for individuals and churches to respond to these challenges biblically. He writes for both church leaders and laymen, insisting that the health of the local church should be the concern of every believer.MARK DEVER, author of several books and articles, serves as the senior pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington DC. Along with his pastoral responsibilities, Dr. Dever also ministers as the executive director of 9Marks. His other Crossway titles include Nine Marks of a Healthy Church and The Deliberate Church. Dever and his wife, Connie, have one son.
As a leading voice for reformation in the twenty-first century, Mark Dever calls evangelicals to love the church as much as we love Jesus. In this exposition of 1 Corinthians he gives clear pastoral guidance for the difficult problems addressed in a difficult book of the Bible, confronting not only the controversial issues that always face the church, but also the spiritual dangers that lurk behind them.
