A top leadership theorist offers a compelling proposal for renovating the way religious education is practiced today. Christian colleges and seminaries have not been immune from the cultural influences shaping contemporary education. Challenging the conventional wisdom advanced by the educational debate during the last fifteen years, Robert Banks builds an innovative new model of theological education based on how ministry formation took place in biblical times. Banks takes full account of key issues raised by our current educational context and shows how a "missional model" of education is more holistic, inclusive, and practical than recent versions.

Corporate Decision Making In The Church Of The New Testament

Debate about church order has gone on for centuries within Christianity, and an end is nowhere in sight. Perhaps that is good, since the debate shows the weaknesses of many ideas that need correction. Corporate Decision-Making examines church order from a careful exegetical perspective, with particular attention to the social world of the New Testament. While most works about church government address structure and qualities of leadership, Brown deals with the interaction of the people of the church, both with their leaders and with one another, in setting policy. In brief, though all believers in the young church of the New Testament revered Christ and his Word as authoritative, not all church decisions were "top down" from earthly leaders. On the contrary, many were "from the bottom up." This should come as no surprise to those familiar with Jesus' admonition in the Gospels, "You have one teacher, and you are all brothers."

Religion can be looked upon as a way of life, but being religious does not make anyone Gods adopted child. Congregating with other persons does not make one the Church. That is why, the requirements are to be born-again of the water, the Holy Spirit, and the blood, as rightly mentioned, but it also involves living and walking by faith in Jesus Christ, the Lord and the Saviour of mankind. Being the Church as the world knows is not just going into a building to congregate for worship, making empty noises, preaching enticing words, and saying thus said the Lord. Hence, the reason for the schisms, when forms of spirit-filled actions take place among churchgoers who are saying the Spirit of God, fell upon the Church. Truly, those are the actions of churchgoers. True worship and walking in the Spirit are demonstrated through the Church in man; Gods dwelling place in man known as the Church militant communicates with the Church triumphantly and invisibly.
