The Idea of Office by K. Sietsma

Henry Vander Kam in Mid-America Journal of Theology: The importance of this book is far greater than its small size . . . The author also deals with the office of all believers. He does so in the sense in which the Bible instructs us in this matter and as it was emphasized again by the reformers.

The Glorious Work of Home Visits by Peter G. Feenstra

Home visitation is a long-standing practice in Reformed churches. But why do we go through this exercise year after year? Does it really benefit the life of the congregation or is it merely a custom we follow? Is there enough direction for those who bring such visits and for those who receive them so that the practice is not robbed of its meaning? How do we keep it from degenerating into a mere routine? These are some of the questions that are addressed by the author of this book.

The Elder

by Cornelis Van Dam

Today’s Ministry

Rooted in All of Scripture

To rediscover God’s gift of eldership for the church today, we need to go back beyond the New Testament to the origins of the office of elder in ancient Israel. There we discover the enduring principles that guided the elder in antiquity and that guide the church today. In this book you will develop a renewed understanding of the office of elder and of godly discipline.

"Rooted in the deep soil of Reformed faith and practice, The Elder is a treasure at a time when much gets lost in translation from theory to practice. I heartily recommend this book for current elders, elders-in-training, aspiring elders, and those who seek to be blessed by their labors." — Michael S. Horton

With a Shepherd’s Heart

by John R. Sittema

Reclaiming the Pastoral office of Elder

Here is a much needed book containing many helpful ideas gleaned from Scripture. My suggestion is that you buy and devour it. — Jay Adams

John Sittema gives elders a fresh and thoroughly Biblical perspective on their work as shepherds in the church. Our elders have discussed many of the author’s articles previously published in "The Outlook" with great profit. This book makes being Reformed exciting.
