Each volume offers biblical answers and practical applications with the goal of nurturing healthy church practice and commitment. In this concise booklet, Jonathan Leeman presents succinct biblical answers to various questions posited about the nature and application of church discipline, conveying that Scripture presents church discipline as both loving and necessary for yielding life, health, holiness, and growth in the local church body.
