Publishers Description "The cruelest thing we can do is to let people remain in their sin when there is liberty to be lived." Ronnie W. Rogers "Pastor Ronnie Rogers' superb volume on discipline.has provided the most detailed study that to my knowledge has been written in recent years." Dr. Paige Patterson, President of Southwestern Seminary "Writing as a biblical theologian, Ronnie Rogers establishes the foundation for church discipline..But Ronnie writes also as an experienced pastor who has faithfully and compassionately worked out the biblical teaching on church discipline in real life." Dr. Richard Wells, Distinguished Professor of Pastoral Theology at The Criswell College and Senior Pastor of South Canyon Baptist Church, Rapid City, SD "It's hypocrisy for a local church to claim to believe the Bible and then willingly ignore the Bible's teaching on church discipline. It's refreshing to see a local church pastor like Ronnie Rogers cry out so clearly against the apathy and disobedience that prevails in most churches on this issue." Dr. Donald S. Whitney, Associate Professor of Spiritual Formation, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

Exactly what God's people need to hear... Jul 14, 2007
In the post-modern age of relativity Ronnie Rogers draws us back to a Biblical perspective concerning this most important topic. Many have probably never heard of church discipline and I'm sure that next to none have seen in practiced. As Rogers explains, even though church discipline is rarely practiced, it was commanded by our Lord Jesus Christ, and refusing to obey His commands is nothing short of sin. A de-emphasis on holiness has led the church to a dire state over the past few decades. The modern philosophy of marketing the church by using "the love of Christ" and never confronting or speaking out on sin or calling people to God's standard of holiness, has lead many churches to become the hypocrites that Christianity has always been accused of being. This book comes just in time. It is a must read for every Christian, but especially for pastors and church leaders. If America ever wants to see revival, the answer is not to water down the message, but to lovingly confront people with the holiness of God and calling them to repentance. Church discipline is the mechanism to purge the local church and to manifest that holiness to this dark world. It is a requirement to be a Biblical church. Rogers does a fantastic job giving the biblical basis and prescriptions for this process. He speaks not only as a theologian, but as a pastor who as gone through the low valleys of disciplining his flock.
