Overview

Jesus, in his ministry, received the empty, the broken, the lost and the diseased. Mark Lauterbach shows how compassion, mediated through a functioning body of believers, provides the answers to human waywardness and maintains the integrity of the Church. Although this is a book about church discipline, it is really about a Spirit-empowered community. Mark uses real situations from his experience to help us turn principles into practice.

Praise for the Print Edition

. . . . A biblically sensitive and pastorally wise book on a subject many people would just as soon forget about: accountability among Christians. True church discipline is not about reinforcing legalisms but rather nurturing believers with a covenanted community of faith.

—Timothy George, Dean of Beeson Divinity School, Samford University, Birmingham, Alabama

I have never read a book like this or even close to this. Written with a rare combination of biblical insight, and seasoned compassion, born of many years 'in the trenches' of local church leadership.

—Ray Pritchard, Senior Pastor, Calvary Memorial Church, Illinois
