A Biblical Leadership And The Church Discipline: Sixteen Textual Sermons
In this book, the author is attempting to define biblical leadership and church discipline. He has pointed out the role of the biblical leadership to act as a good shepherd as Jesus Christ was. He discussed how Jesus Christ opposed false leaders and cleansed the temple at Jerusalem as an act to return to Gods way of holiness and piety. His role was assumed by his apostles. They condemned false teachers and apostles and removed wicked persons from churches. The apostles were doing the work of the prophets of the LORD God to turn to God and to bring reforms in the Church and exercise church discipline. This book would help know church discipline from a biblical point of view and a necessity to enforce on the believers in order to maintain the image of the Church as a holy institute standing for sacredness of human life and justice for humanity.
