Part of the 9Marks Healthy Church Study Guides series, this study examines key New Testament texts on church discipline and explains how to practice it in love. While church discipline is never easy, it is nonetheless an important, albeit painful, part of the Christian life. This helpful study guide tackles the difficult topic through six chapters designed to focus discussion on the interpretation and application of biblical texts. Groups will work through questions as they discover the function and role of church discipline, and how to view it as a fundamentally loving process.
A series of ten 6-7 week studies covering the nine distinctives of a healthy church as originally laid out in Nine Marks of a Healthy Church by Mark Dever. This series explores the biblical foundations of key aspects of the church, helping Christians to live out those realities as members of a local body. Conveniently packaged and accessibly written, the format of this series is guided, inductive discussion of Scripture passages and is ideal for use in Sunday school, church-wide studies, or small group contexts.
