Church discipline is essential to building a healthy church. So how exactly do we practice church discipline? In this book, Jonathan Leeman helps us face the endless variety of circumstances and sins for which no scriptural case study exists - sins that don't show up on any list and need a biblical framework to be corrected appropriately in love.
Here is a contemporary and concise how-to guide that provides a theological framework for understanding and implementing disciplinary measures in the local church, along with several examples of real-life situations and the corresponding responses.
"Far too few biblically grounded, pastorally sensitive books on church discipline remain in print today. I know of none that is as exegetically accurate, practically relevant, and filled with real-life case studies of how churches should deal with a wide variety of common situations. On top of all this, Leeman is helpfully succinct and remarkably clear."? - Craig L. Blomberg, Distinguished Professor of New Testament, Denver Seminary
