Review 1 for Perspectives on Church Government: Five Views of Church Polity
Date:February 8, 2008
This book presents an interesting view into the various perspectives on church government. The disappointment comes when the authors are not given a chance to respond to the criticisms they receive (located at the end of each chapter). The counterpoint series is much better in this regard. However, great book for overall understanding of church government.
