Many church members today have little or no knowledge of
the biblical and Reformed principles of church government
especially those in hierarchical or departing churches.
Ministers and church periodicals do not teach these things
and members are left ignorant and helpless, unaware of their
church rights and responsibilities, and unable to protest or
appeal church practices or decisions.
This work by Prof. Hanko, a long-time church member,
minister and theological instructor fills this need. As a
teacher of church polity and one with many years of
experience both of church assemblies and of helping church
members formulate their presentations, he is a safe guide to
the confused layman.
The first and longest part of this work gives a concise
explanation of all the 86 articles of the Church Order of
Dordt, as used in the Protestant Reformed Churches.
The second part explains how the child of God is to
relate to church office-bearers, how he is to bring matters
to the assemblies, his calling in family visitation, at
congregational meetings and in church discipline.
Even those from different ecclesiastical backgrounds and
with different church orders or church codes will find this
book helpful as it sets forth the principles of Scripture
and Reformed ecclesiology as regards the institutional life
of the church of Jesus Christ our Head and Redeemer.
