40 QUESTIONS ABOUT CHURCH MEMBERSHIP AND DISCIPLINE

40 QUESTIONS ABOUT CHURCH MEMBERSHIP AND DISCIPLINE
$13.59
New/Used: New
Addresses forty of the most common and thorny questions about church life

Does church membership mean more than simply joining a social group? Does the church have a responsibility to discipline its members--and if so, what does that look like? Recognizing the many puzzling questions about the critical role of the church in the life of believers, Jeremy Kimble addresses forty key points.

Each section considers questions of theology, ministry, and practicality, such as:

  • Is there a New Testament precedent for membership?
  • How does membership relate to baptism and communion?
  • Who should become a member?
  • How is discipline related to discipleship?
  • Should a believer associate with someone under church discipline?
  • Like the other volumes in the 40 Questions & Answers Series, this book raises--and clearly answers--the most common and difficult questions that church leaders and members have. With succinct chapters, this is an eminently practical resource for any church leader, elder board, or new member seeking a foundational understanding of how the church should function.

    INVITATION TO BIBLICAL THEOLOGY

    INVITATION TO BIBLICAL THEOLOGY
    $34.69
    New/Used: New

    Invitation to Biblical Theology provides a thorough overview of biblical theology that is accessible for those new to the topic but substantial enough for advanced study. Defining biblical theology as “the study of the whole Bible on its own terms,” Jeremy Kimble and Ched Spellman begin with a brief history of the discipline followed by a survey of contemporary approaches. They then lay out their own approach, built on the framework of the canon, the covenants, and Christ.

    Taking God’s plan of redemption in Christ as the uniting theme of Scripture, Kimble and Spellman survey the grand storyline of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, showing how each division of the canon moves the overarching story forward. The following ten chapters survey central and recurring themes of Scripture including kingdom, worship, Messiah and atonement, God’s glory, and mission. The authors conclude with reflections on how biblical theology can serve the church as well as the academy.

    $5.81 - $9.69
    New/Used: New

    We see Jesus, we believe in Jesus and we wait for Jesus, yet still we suffer. This book offers real and rugged answers in life's dark places. Discover how to live with hope in a fallen, messed- up, wild world, and be encouraged.

    Walking through Genesis 3, Dan DeWitt shows us how we can look at this world realistically but without despairing, as we wait for God to keep his promise to bring us out of the wild and into his new creation. It's the contrast between Eden, where everything reflects God's perfection, and exile, where everything is spoiled by sin. The book helps us survive living in exile - Life in the Wild - until "the glorious day when God will welcome us home, out of the wild".

    This book holds dark and light in balance. It shows how we are living with the effects of the fall (we are messed-up people living in a messed-up place) - but God's promise, made in Eden, serves as a beacon of light to guide our steps in this fallen world.

    THE FRIEND WHO FORGIVES

    THE FRIEND WHO FORGIVES
    $14.99

    Do you ever talk before you think? Mess up? Let others down?

    That's what Peter did, again and again and again, and it led him to abandoning his best friend, Jesus.

    Peter loved Jesus. He felt terrible when he pretended not to know him. He thought all was lost when Jesus died.

    But after Jesus rose from the dead, he went and found Peter and forgave him. He explained that his death took the punishment for all of Peter's mistakes and that his resurrection showed that the penalty was lifted.

    Peter spent the rest of his life telling people that if they put their trust in Jesus, they could be forgiven too--again and again and again.

    Children know all about failing, but they don't always experience true forgiveness. This book points them to Jesus, the friend who will forgive them again and again and again.

    WHY BOTHER WITH CHURCH?

    WHY BOTHER WITH CHURCH?
    $7.99

    A short, readable book that explains clearly and simply what the church is and why it really matters.

    The church has an image problem.

    It is widely viewed in the world at large as being outdated, boring, irrelevant and filled with backbiting hypocrites.

    How different that picture is to how the Bible talks about the new family that Jesus has gathered. It is a precious bride, a sparkling jewel, a lifeboat for forgiven sinners that is precious and holy; nurturing and warm; filled with truth, friendship and all embracing, forgiving love.

    Sam Allberry understands the collision between these two views, and how, even as Christian believers, we can lose sight of how truly wonderful church is and should be, and what a privilege it is to be part of, and to serve.

    In this brief accessible but thorough guide to church, Sam outlines what church is and why we need it. And how, when we have got it wrong, we can move closer to what a true church should be.

    Part of the Questions Christians Ask series: a range of short, simple books designed to help Christians understand what God has said about these questions and many more in the Bible.
