To rediscover God's gift of eldership for the church today, we need to go back beyond the New Testament to the origins of the office of elder in ancient Israel. There we discover the enduring principles that guided the elder in antiquity - and that guide the church today. In this book you will develop a renewed understanding of the office of elder and of godly discipline.
"Rooted in the deep soil of Reformed faith and practice, Rediscovering the Elder is also a treasure at a time when much gets lost these days in translation from theory to practice. I heartily recommend this book for current elders, elders-in-training, aspiring elders, and those who seek to be blessed by their labors." -- Michael Horton
My guest on the program today will be Cornelis Van Dam - Professor of Old Testament at the Canadian Reformed Theological Seminary (Hamilton, Ontario).
