Item Description...
The burden of God has placed upon my heart is twofold: first to help clarify the biblical doctrine of eldership and second, to help church elderships function effectively. This book is intended to fulfill the first purpose, so it is primarily doctrinal and exegetical in nature. To fulfill the second purpose, I have developed additional written and audio materials that will promote effective leadership and help train future elders. It is not enough merely to have an eldership; the eldership must be actively functioning, competent, and spiritually alive.

Publishers Description
In order to define biblical eldership, we must go back to the only God-given, authoritative source, the text of Holy Scripture. Church history demonstrates the disastrous consequences of drifting from the light of Scripture. This book fulfills the need for an in-depth study on the topic, based in the vast treasure of God's Word.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An opinion.  Aug 16, 2006
Most of the teaching in this book was helpful in pulling out the scriptures which related to a particular subject heading. However, the author's interpretation of the scriptures and understanding of the culture during the times the scriptures were written was, in many places, poor.
The chapter about leadership being male was interesting. He really had to go round the houses to justify what he believed.
This book is one man's interpretation and opinion, and should be read as such.

Sound Biblical exploration of Eldership  Aug 10, 2006
Strauch builds a strong case for the importance of eldership--not just any eldership but eldership as described in the New Testament. Biblical elders, Strauch argues, are not board members or advisors to the pastor, but are themselves called to pastor, lead, protect, and care for the church. They are not subordinate to the pastor, but part of a collaborative team of equals each with needed gifts. Elders must be qualified men, but the qualification isn't seminary: the biblical qualification lies in being mature men of character who are motivated to serve. Strauch presents his points clearly and with strong Biblical support, also adding historical and cultural data to back up his interpretation. Strauch's presentation is a bit redundant, in part because he makes the points above in the first section, supporting them with Scripture, and he later goes sequentially through each of the same Scriptures in more detail to show how and why he has interpreted each verse in the New Testament that mentions eldership. The redundancy is not all bad, especially since this model of eldership--while Biblical--does not appear to be practiced in most churches: the repetition and detailed analysis may indeed be useful to those for whom these concepts are new. While Strauch adequately ties his reflections into life--there are clear practical implications--for the reader who isn't already in a church that practices these principles, a bit more practical, real-life example--how we've seen these principle work in practice, how to get there from here type reflection might be useful. Nonetheless, Strauch's Biblical Eldership is a must-read for anyone seriously interested in exploring what the New Testament says about how the church should be lead.
Biblical Eldership  Jul 30, 2006
This is the best book concerning the understanding (biblically) and the role of elders in the church I have ever seen. The author exigetically, as well as topically, takes the reader through a very comprehensive tour of what the Bible has to say about eldership in the local church. I cannot imagine how anyone could do a more thorough or biblical study on the subject of eldership.
Must read for all (future) churchleaders  Dec 30, 2005
This is a must read for every serious christian. Strauch show from biblical examples what an elder is supposed te be and do: not a CEO, but a shepherd, garding, feeding and caring for His flock.
Biblical elderships  Jul 15, 2004
This book tells how to divide a church against itself through the use of grandruerious leaders. An excellent read for megalomanical pastors. A must read for all Christians.
