What is a Healthy Church?
Mark Dever (and Jonathan Leeman) recently produced a new book introducing the essential and important distinctives of his Nine Marks of a Healthy Church. This book is comparable in size and audience to C. J. Mahaney's The Cross Centered Life and John Piper's The Dangerous Duty of Delight, and I am finding the content to be concise yet significant. I appreciate Dever's efforts to base every argument in Scripture. I hope to write a short review soon.
Pray for my church (and yours) to be a model of a healthy church!
