There are several cultural fires in the church right now:
The church’s willingness to be clear and truthful without vitriol is key to maintaining a voice in our culture. Additionaly, another issue of importance is the qualification and structure of biblical leadership. This issue asks questions like:
Is there a difference between an elder and a deacon?
Must a church have both?
What are the biblical qualifications of each?
Can men and women hold these offices?
Church leadership may very well be the prime one issue presently. No church can decide its theology, its structure, or engage in the above cultural issues without settling on this one. Thankfully, 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1 are gifted to us in the scriptures. Yet, questions still remain as we look at the book of Acts and the end of Romans.
Studying these passages is key, even for the layman. Resting in a biblical conviction enables the believer to rest comfortably in their church’s structure.
Towards that end, Gospel Rich Books is the proud to present, “Is a Good Man Hard to Find?” by Gordon Duncan. It is a verse by verse look at the key leadership passages in Paul’s letters. It is concise, affordable, and a welcome addition to the field of church leadership studies.
It makes a great gift and is available in both paperback and kindle. Also, if you would like to explore the Gospel Rich Books catalog further, you can also find them at Amazon.
