Overview

In this collection, author, editor, professor, and pastor Joel R. Beeke brings insight to three topics: church membership, the Lord’s Supper, and evangelicalism. Beeke analyzes the purpose of church membership and the characteristics that make up a faithful church member. He examines what it means to be an evangelical, addressing secular and religious views on this often-confusing identity. And, with Paul M. Smalley, he prepares your heart for the Lord’s Supper by providing over 60 reflective devotional readings and prayers from numerous authors.

The Logos Bible Software edition of the Joel R. Beeke Collection is designed to encourage and stimulate your study and understanding of Christian traditions. Scripture passages link directly to your English translations and to the original language texts, and important concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. In addition, you can perform powerful searches by topic and find what other authors, scholars, and theologians have to say about church membership, the Lord’s Supper, and evangelicalism.

A Faithful Church Member analyzes the purpose of church membership and the 15 characteristics that make up a faithful church member. In it, Joel R. Beeke shows us, through Ephesians 4:10–16, that membership in the church is all about Christ. He focuses on Christ’s word, his person, his people, his cause, and his image, and examines what it means to be a faithful member of Christ’s body in three areas of life: personal, public, and practical. This volume includes Bible study questions, making it perfect for individual or group study.

This concise account of what it means to be a faithful church member is exactly on target. All of us (yes, you too) need to see God’s central design for our lives as including ‘church.’ Too often, the church is a Cinderella figure: ignored and forgotten. Dr. Beeke’s summary will challenge all who read it to both reflection and repentance. Essential reading.

Derek W. H. Thomas, professor of systematic and historical theology, Reformed Theological Seminary

This is an enriching study of what it means to be in membership of the church. Joel Beeke’s careful, Bible based study of this important theme will go a long way to addressing the prevalent culture of casual church membership, and will be a useful resource both for current and prospective members who want to be serious about their commitment to Christ.

Iain Campbell, pastor, Point Free Church, Isle of Lewis, Scotland

I am delighted to commend this short but very relevant booklet of Dr. Beeke on the duties and privileges of church membership. If these principles are taken to heart they will revolutionize the attitude of modern Christians to the real meaning of church membership and could lead to the revival which we should all be praying for.

Feasting with Christ: Meditations on the Lord’s Supper

  • Editors: Joel R. Beeke and Paul M. Smalley

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The Lord’s Supper is more than a ritual. It is an invitation to exercise our faith in Christ crucified for our sins. Behind the simplicity of the bread and the cup we discover the riches of the Gospel. Sadly, Christians too often rush into this sacred act with little reflection. But spiritual writers of former centuries left us a rich devotional legacy that unveils the glory of Christ in the Supper. In this volume, over 60 short devotional readings and prayers from over 40 authors carry the reader from preparation to celebration to reflection. You might jump in to sample a few selections by people like Richard Sibbes, John Flavel, or Wilhelmus a Brakel, or read it straight through in the days before and after partaking. By the time you reach the end, you will discover that this book isn’t just about the Lord’s Supper. It’s about drawing near to a covenant God through Jesus Christ.

Many words have been written about who should take the Lord’s Supper, how often we should take it, and other technical questions. Here, at last, we have a book on the Lord of the Supper and how to feast upon him.

—David P. Murray, professor of Hebrew and Old Testament, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary

These devotionals are soul-refreshing aids to ensure true spiritual communion with Christ as Christians put their feet under the Lord’s table and feast. Why have we not had such a book before now? One, of the most helpful books I have read in recent times.

Derek W. H. Thomas, professor of systematic and historical theology, Reformed Theological Seminary

This delightful book helps inform our minds and warm our hearts so that we may come to the Lord’s Supper with an eager readiness to see Christ himself and his saving work. It helps us come with prayer to the Holy Spirit that he may use these humble means, bread and wine, which Christ has chosen, over which he is Lord, for our soul’s good. We come in a spirit of humble devotion expecting and receiving the grace God gives so willingly to obedient, longing hearts. We prepare by reading these high devotional comments on the Supper. What a help they are, and yet our experience of the grace of the Supper always our best attempts at understanding the blessed ordinance, because our Savior deals with us more graciously in this word and sacrament than we can ever deserve or even desire.

—Geoff Thomas, pastor, Alfred Place Baptist Church, Aberystwyth, Wales

What Is Evangelicalism?

  • Author: Joel R. Beeke

What is an evangelical? Confusion over the meaning of the term is causing some to give up identifying themselves as evangelicals, while others insist that any attempt to delineate the boundaries of evangelicalism should be abandoned. Dr. Beeke accepts as evangelical, those brothers who accept the authority of Scripture, trust only in the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior, and believe that the historic reality of Christ’s atoning death and resurrection provide the only hope of salvation. Danger arises when there is no real understanding of such doctrines.
