The divine right of church-government and excommunication

Overview

In order to find out how the church ought to be governed, the best model to look at is Jesus himself. Drawing at length from Scripture, Samuel Rutherford argues that we must comply with Christ’s policies rather than expect him to comply with ours. Rutherford systematically tackles many opposing schools of thoughts such as that of Richard Hooker as well as formalism and the “papists.” This volume also includes Rutherford’s Treatise on Scandal.
