A Pure Church, subtitled A Biblical Theology Of Ecclesiastical Separation, was written by Pastors Mike Custer, David Mallinak, Erich McCandless, Bobby Mitchell, Thomas Smith, David Sutton, Gary Webb, and Kent Brandenburg. Pastor Brandenburg also served as editor. It is more than 300 pages of solid, biblical teaching from pastors who are committed to studying, preaching, and obeying the Bible. It is scholarly but simple and straight-forward. It is thought-provoking and practical.
If you are interested in a book that deals thoroughly with various subjects related to the purity of the local New Testament church and that deals with those subjects by dealing thoroughly with the passages of Scripture that address them, then I urge you to read this book. I am convinced that it is truly one of a kind. It will encourage, strengthen, convict, challenge, and bless any believer who loves the Lord and His church.
A few of the chapter titles are:
What Protects The Church And What Is Protected?
John 17 And Unity
Fellowship For His Names’ Sake
Separation From The Believer: Resolving Offenses In The Local Church
The Pastor’s Responsibility In Promoting Church Purity
Self-Examination, Confession, The Lord’s Table And The Purity Of The Church
If you are convinced that there is an all-out assault on the purity and holiness of the Lord’s churches today, and you want to be further strengthened in standing against the enemy and with the Lord, then I believe you will be helped by this book.
