About the Book

The New Testament model for the church is neither pragmatic fluff nor sterile traditionalism, but rather biblically driven, which places her somewhere between the traditional and contemporary church models.

“Seasoned by decades of pastoral experience, Ronnie Rogers makes a compelling, biblical-theological case that an equipping church fulfills God’s plan for the bride of Christ.”

Adam Harwood, Ph.D.

Associate Professor of Theology, McFarland Chair of Theology New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary

“This book gives the reader a robust ecclesiology, a biblical philosophy of ministry, and a host of practical exhortations that will lead to biblical reformation among God’s people.”

Josh Wagner, M.A. Biblical Languages

Pastor, Berry Road Baptist Church Norman, OK

“On rare occasions I read a book that I simply can’t put down until the last page. This is such a book…From his fertile mind, gifted pen, and more than thirty years of pastoral experience, comes a work that everyone in Christian ministry must read. Rogers cuts through the murk of all the discussions and debates about traditional and contemporary ministry approaches.”

David L. Allen, Ph.D.

Dean of the School of Theology

Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
