Essays on Church Life

Wilson presents a very practical and pastoral guide to many of the countless issues that arise in conservative Christian churches. The essays span subjects ranging from the nature of legalism and church authority to worship music, debt, youth ministry, and pastoral character. The elder questions at the end are killers; try them on.

From the book: "Modern evangelicals have gained money, power, and influence, and it has been like giving whiskey to a two-year-old. The need of the hour is theological, not political. The arena is the pulpit and the table, not the legislative chamber. Before we are equipped to proclaim His lordship to the inhabitants of all the earth, we must live as though we believed it in the Church."

Douglas Wilson is pastor of Christ Church, Moscow, Idaho, editor of Credenda/Agenda magazine, and a Senior Fellow at New St. Andrews College. In his spare time, he whacks bee hives just to see what happens.

"Wilson brings to this book a fearlessness to deal with current ecclesiological issues. He not only looks at the broad evangelical scene but also at Reformed practice. He reminds readers to examine the pride and vainglory that may be sinking down roots in their own lives."
-- The Presbyterian Witness

"Provocatively, systematically, and intelligently written, this book is crammed with practical biblical wisdom. . . . [H]is comments cut close to the bone."
-- Christian Renewal

"Essays on the Church"

John Caneday on 8/2/2012 1:10:04 PM


Comments: This is a great book on the church and its role in society. It covers a multitude of topics including the church's role in maintaining the Word of God in the language of the church. Wilson believes the modern church has abandoned responsibility of the Scriptures to corporations. He also covers preaching, teaching, church governance, qualifications for elders and deacons, worship, and the Lord's day. This is an excellent resource and I recommend it to all.
