“Jesus is my personal Lord and Savior.” No phrase captures better the ethos of modern evangelical Christianity. And while this is absolutely necessary for a Christian to believe and profess, what typically gets lost in much evangelical thinking and acting is Jesus’ church. This book seeks to present to evangelical Christians the basics of ecclesiology, or, the biblical doctrine of the church. The authors say in these pages, “This is a church,” in the most basic and fundamental of ways. No matter what view of church government you may hold, the goal is to draw you back to the big principles of Scripture to help you understand the church’s identity, authority, ecumenicity, and activity.
William Boekestein and Danny Hyde love the church because they love the church’s Head, Jesus Christ. They want you and me to love the church also. How do we come to love the church more? By learning more about the order, offices, and callings that Jesus has given the church in the Bible. A Well–Ordered Church is a well–written, accessible, and practical introduction to the life and work of the church. Whether you are new to a Reformed church or you have been part of one for a long time, pick up this book and get a clearer glimpse of the church … and of the Savior who “loved the church and gave himself up for her.”
Guy Prentiss Waters, James M. Baird, Jr. Professor of New Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Miss. USA
