About

There are many fine books available on the offices of church leadership. Few, if any, address for a contemporary audience the biblical foundations of the government of the church. But this should be a priority for us, because God emphasizes the government of his church throughout Scripture.

Why should we be church members? How do church officers reflect Jesus’ reign over us? Where do the church’s responsibilities begin and end? Where do ours? These, and other important questions, are answered in Guy Prentiss Water’s vital examination of How Jesus Runs the Church.

At a time when church authority is treated with contempt, it’s important that we honor God in our churches more than ever.

"A compelling reminder that the health of the church is inescapably tied to its polity, and that submission to biblical church government is essential to the rightly ordered Christian life."

—John Muether

"One of the Reformed community's finest contemporary biblical scholars. . . . I heartily recommend this book and hope that for many years it will strengthen our understanding and practice of biblical church government."

—David VanDrunen
