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.

Beeke is president and professor of systematic theology and homiletics at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, pastor of the Heritage Netherlands Reformed Congregation in Grand Rapids, Michigan, editorial director of Reformation Heritage Books, and editor of the Banner of Sovereign Grace Truth.
