This review is from: Biblical Eldership (Paperback)
This is an excerpt. The full review can be found on my blog (found via my profile)
Pastor/elders will of course profit greatly from this book, but even the churchgoer would benefit from understanding the elder's role and all the Scripture has to say about it - after all, the majority of the NT letters were written to the churches, not only the elders. Some will disagree with Strauch more than others dependent upon their view of church polity, but all could benefit from his exegesis and pastoral wisdom.
Strauch exhibits a clear and contagious love for the church and the elders' role - a servant leadership. This work perfectly fulfils a much-neglected lack. I've seen Biblical Eldership on many pastors' bookshelves and each one that I've spoken to has praised it highly. I could only do the same.
Many thanks to Lewis & Roth for providing this review copy in return for a fair review.
