Why Elders? A Biblical and Practical Guide for Church Members is a straightforward and readable guide concerning the bibical role of elders and deacons. Each of the four major chapters answers the question as to why elders are crucial in the church today. The elder model of church leadership is important because (1) it is the pattern of the New Testament Church; (2) it provides help and accountablity for a pastor; (3) it produces a healthier church; and (4) it promotes the biblical role of deacons.

From the Back Cover:

Why Elders? lucidly addresses why the early church was organized the way it was and how we can follow Scripture's prescription and model for church leadership today.

Merkle grounds this study about church elders in the Word of God as he clearly and succinctly informs laypeople as the to the necessity and biblical role of elders and deacons.
