How Jesus Runs the Church

1 hour 3 minutes

On this program we welcome Guy Prentiss Waters to speak about his book How Jesus Runs the ChurchThe doctrine of the church is critically important for the Christian life, but often lags behind in received attention. Dr. Waters brings us back to the Scriptural foundation that shows us how Jesus Christ actively reigns in and through his body.

Dr. Waters is Associate Professor of New Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi. He holds degrees from the University of Pennsylvania (B.A.), Westminster Theological Seminary (M.Div.), and Duke University (Ph.D.). He is ordained in the Presbyterian Church in America and is the author of Justification and the New Perspectives on Paul. Dr. Waters previously visited Christ the Center to speak about N.T. Wright’s doctrine of justification. You may listen to the entire two-part conversation (part 1 and part 2).

    Maybe the first comment on a broadcast BEFORE listening, but I received this book in the mail the day before seeing the new podcast. This book is excellent and I was already a big fan of Dr. Waters who is warm, winsome, and a gifted scholar. Thanks guys- will be listening.

  2. For those who don’t have it or have not read it James Bannerman’s Two-Volume “Church of Christ” is a must have for any Presbyterian who wants to really understand Presbyterianism.

I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naïve. (Romans 16:17-18)
