What is an ideal Church, and how do you recognize it?

How is it different from others? More importantly, how does its operation stand out, especially in society? Many of us don't know how to answer these questions, even if we admit to having some idea. This book will guide your thinking on the subject.

The author seeks to help believers recognize the essential features of a healthy church: preaching by exposure of the text, biblical theology, and a correct understanding of the gospel. He then encourages us to develop these characteristics in our own churches. Following the example of the New Testament writers and speaking to the entire Church - the pastor and all its members, Mark Dever calls on all believers to do their part in keeping the local Church healthy. The Church: A Health Check offers eternal truths and practical principles to help each of us fulfill the role God has assigned to us in the body of Christ.
