One of the best resources on the biblical model of church government is Alexander Strauch’s Biblical Eldership. We used it as a textbook for our Pastoral Leadership course at TBS. Strauch is exegetically thorough and sound, the work is theologically and historically rich, and wisdom oozes from the pages. This past year I received a copy of a little pamphlet that Strauch did that basically sums up his larger work. I’m glad to see this helpful little resource is available online for free.
