Norma Cook Everist: The Difficult but Indispensable Church


Professor Persaud believes a focus on Scripture and authentic worship allows a local church to be diverse yet unified. With this belief in hand, he points out the too human tendencies and foibles of the flesh-and-blood members in the pews. Despite those issues, he paints a glorious picture of the impact and influence such a local body can have in the world.

With its detailed notes and ample references, Difficult but Indispensable is an excellent resource for those with an intellectual approach to local church life. Even those with a less academic approach should be able to glean much valuable insight from this work. Backed by Scripture, as much as statistics, the writers are clearly men and women who want to expand Christ’s Kingdom. I am certain that most church leaders will find something of value within the book’s pages.
