Biblical Eldership: Restoring the Eldership to Its Rightful Place in Church by Alexander Strauch - Free EBook
Because many people do not have the time or interest to read a large technical book like Biblical Eldership: An Urgent Call to Restore Biblical Church Leadership, this booklet is a condensed edition of the full book. The doctrine of biblical eldership is very important for all church members to understand. Therefore, this small, 48-page abridgment of the full text was written to put the doctrine of biblical eldership within reach of every member of your church body.

While reading a chapter of Andreas Kostenberger's new book The First Days of Jesus I came across the following quote:
Wrong expectations are a key source of disillusionment and disappointment. A cynical person might argue that we should never expect anything from anyone in order to avoid being let down. Such an approach to people and God, however, will surely lead to a bitter and lonely life. We need each other, and we need God. What happens, then, when God fails to meet our expectations or to act in the way we thought, hoped, and prayed He would?
May God's people ever be mindful of the fact that pain and evil are the results and consequences of sin. God is not the one to be blamed for evil and suffering; He is the only source of hope for a lost and dying world. May God's children ever hold to His hand and trust in His Word though dark and dreary may be the way knowing that He will "never leave you nor forsake you." (Hebrews 13:5)

We want to thank ChristianLandmark.com for making the video available and we hope you will check out their other articles, materials, and videos.
