A Well-Ordered Church (Review)
This review is for the book "A Well-Ordered Church" by William Boekestein and Daniel Hyde. I really enjoyed this book. The authors of this book are attempting to talk to evangelical Christians through this book to explain the basic biblical doctrines of the church. The book is centered on why a church needs to have a strong foundation in Jesus Christ. That is the identity (should be, anyway) of the local church. Christ is the authority of the church and so many of our modern churches have lost that. That is why people leave the church over the music, or the color of the carpet, or if there is a steeple or not. These are things that are making us lose our focus. In this book, the authors point out the direction we should be headed as a church (we should be teaching, worshiping, witnessing, repenting, etc.) and how to get there if we have strayed. I think this is a must-read for all Christians and especially church leaders.
Thank you to Cross Focused Reviews for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
