Does the church have a responsibility to dis- cipline its members—and if so, what does that look like? Recognizing the many puzzling questions about the criti- cal role of the church in the lives of believers, Jeremy Kimble addresses forty key questions regarding believers and their relationship to the church. Like the other volumes in the 40 Questions Series, this book raises—and clearly answers—the most common and difficult questions that church leaders and members have. With suc- cinct chapters, this is an eminently practical resource for any church leader, elder board, or new member seeking a founda- tional understanding of how the church should function. Jeremy M. Kimble (PhD, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary) is assistant professor of theology at Cedarville College.
