The Historical Roots of the Presbyterian Church in America is a Presbyterian Primer, one of a series of books by Don Clements that has been written in non-academic style, specifically designed to reach new or previously unread Church members. It lends itself quite well as an easy-to-read training manual for church officers or as an interesting introduction for persons new to church history. Topics covered in this volume include a pithy overview of the Protestant Reformation, the birth of Presbyterianism, the branching of Reformed denominations, the theological decline into liberalism by various branches, the founding of the Presbyterian Church in America and the rejoining of branches as the roots come back together. Dr. Clements offers a list of characteristics of the PCA that makes it "who it is" and calls others to solidify such an anthology in order to firmly establish a distinct foundation for leadership and a legacy for future generations. Reading this book will inspire you to appreciate the service, sacrifice and martyrdom of those who have gone before, and whet your appetite for Christian history, even if you don't enjoy or see the importance of spending time on learning about the past.
God The Son is the second book in the Understanding The Trinity series written by Don K. Clements. (God The Holy Spirit is in print; God The Father is under contract). God the Son contains 20 chapters dealing with 20 separate topics in the life and work of Jesus. While these are not the only things one can learn about Jesus of Nazareth, they certainly are among the most important. The writing style is designed, according to the author, 'for guys who don't like to read'. Each chapter is free-standing, making the book ideal for devotional reading. The topics taken together make the book ideal for study - and it is suitable for a textbook at the High School and or college level. And finally, each chapter is taken from an evangelistic sermon, making the book ideal for seekers as well as new converts alike to help them understand more about Jesus. The theological position of the author is traditional Protestant, from the reformed branch. However, this work seeks to reach a broader evangelical market and stresses key issues such as the Incarnation, the Virgin Birth, the Active and Passive Work of Jesus, the Offices (Prophet, Priest, and King), as well as describing the primary responses of the Great Commission, the Great Commandment, and the Great Cultural Mandate. One reviewer says of this book: 'God The Son' is remarkably clear of theological jargon and long on concise explication of key scriptures. It encourages and feeds readers. Chapter 17 on the Great Commandment ("Learning about Love from Dale Earnhardt.") alone is worth the cost - in money and reading time
Biblical Church Government is a Presbyterian Primer, one of a series of books by Don Clements that has been written in non-academic style, specifically designed to reach new or previously unread Church members. Originally released in 2003, this second edition has been updated and reformatted to allow space in the margins for notes. It lends itself quite well as an easy-to-read training manual for church officers or as a more in-depth study for persons considering church membership. One pastor says this is the one book actually read consistently by leadership candidates in his church. Topics covered in this volume include "The Importance of Leadership in the Church," "Church Government in the New Testament," "Christ the King," "How Many Offices Are There in the Church?" "The Function of Elders," "The Tasks of Elders," "Power and Authority in the Church," "The Necessity of Church Discipline," "The Origin, Function and Tasks of Deacons," "The Role of Women in the Church," "Qualifications for Office" and "The Confessional and Connectional Nature of the Church." Clements uses the English Standard Version throughout for references. In his book, Dr. Clements distinguishes between the various forms of church government, making a biblical case for the Presbyterian form. He offers the reasoning and need for officers in the organized church, and presents a thorough study of the leadership structure and duties delineated in the Bible. This book is the only one in print today that explains the unique 'two office' (elder and deacon) view of Presbyterian government that is practiced in the Presbyterian Church in America. Lots of practical caveats gained from many years of experience are included alongthe way.
