Item description for Who Rules the Church?: Examining Congregational Leadership and Church Government by Gerald Cowen...

Overview
In this book author Gerald Cowen will offer critical definitions about what the work of a pastor or elder is--what is his job description and what are the limits of his authority. This book will make the case that the New Testament model for congregational government is the Pastoral Leadership-Congregational rule. In other words, authority is given by the Lord to the congregation itself, but the pastor is God-called to that congregation not only to serve and take care of the congregation but to be the leader.

Reviews - What do customers think about Who Rules the Church?: Examining Congregational Leadership and Church Government?

Clearing up the Biblical misconceptions of Leadership  Jan 19, 2006
This is a wonderful book that can be enjoyed by any Protestant denomination. It challenges the preconceived notions of every denomination and encourages them to search the Bible for the authentic titles, roles, and responsibilities of Church leaders. This book has great Biblical support for most of its points. I would categorize it as a conservative book, but it can challenge anyone.
 
Pastor Tim  Jul 20, 2005
This was a poor attempt at addressing the subject. It was not well organized and the thought process was rather convoluted.
I would not recommend this book.
