Praise for Mark Dever's '9 Marks of a Healthy Church' (other retailers')

"This is simply the most Biblically invigorating work on the 'how to' of church that is available today. Absolutely essential reading for any conservative evangelical church who are serious about really prioritising and focussing on what's Biblically important in the present day morass of quasi/liberal evangelical thinking and cartloads of 'church programmes' all claiming to be Biblical, but which are weak on doctrine and merely accommodate the world."

"9 Marks of a Healthy Church is the best book on church health (which is more important than growth) that I have come across. Most important, it is the best because it is the most faithful to the principles already in Scriture. Those churches that honestly seek to glorify God in their corporate life and worship will find this to be an excellent guide."
