A Journey in Authority
A Theological Novel
A Journey in Authority is the continuing story of pastor Ira Pointer, facing another theological pursuit: this one, Biblical church government. Having always assumed that church decisions should be made in a congregational manner, a jolting experience leads him to consider the possibility that the New Testament teaches elder rule. He has to study the Scriptures to determine:
What is an elder?
What authority does an elder have?
And what are a church’s obligations to their elders, and his obligations to the church?
