Description: This book has three major segments: Discipline in Old Baptist Churches, The Disappearance of Discipline, and New Testament Church Discipline. It documents the strictness of church discipline in Baptist churches prior to the 20th century and describes the downfall in discipline since then, both in convention or denominational Baptist churches, such as Southern Baptist, and in Independent Baptist churches.
The study on New Testament discipline is extensive and practical. It deals with the goals of church discipline, the right attitude of discipline, the patience and wisdom for discipline, the authority for discipline, the authority for discipline, discipline of interpersonal problems, discipline of disorderly conduct, discipline of public and grave offenses, exclusion and restoration, discipline of faith teachers, discipline of church leaders, inactive membership, and discipline and the Lord’s Supper.
