"Restoring Integrity in Baptist Churches" features notable contributors on the key issues in many local churches, especially within the Southern Baptist Convention, America's largest Protestant denomination. Some of the contributors include Mark Dever (on church membership); Daniel Akin (on baptism); Emir Caner (on the Lord's Supper); Gregory Wills (on church discipline); and Malcolm B. Yarnell III (on the priesthood of all believers). Pastors and church leaders will find here a timely resource for important theological questions; students training for the ministry will gain a practical guide.
