It was a joy to write Conduct Gospel Centered Funerals with my dear friend and fellow pastor, Phil A. Newton and we both have been encouraged by the response of it. What many of you may not realize is that several years ago Phil wrote one of the most helpful and clear books on elders that exists. Elders in Congregational Life is a must read for those who are pastors thinking through this biblical office of the church, as well as those who are trying to implement a proper function of plurality with their local church context. Allow Phil to guide you through this excellent resource. He is a most qualified counselor on the matter as he patiently and thoughtfully walked his congregation through this transition and continues to do so almost 30 years later. You can find it on sale here.
