Twelve Challenges Churches Face

Here are the endorsements for Mark Dever's new book, Twelve Challenges Churches Face:

"As a leading voice for reformation in the twenty-first century, Mark Dever calls evangelicals to love the church as much as we love Jesus. In this exposition of 1 Corinthians he gives clear pastoral guidance for the difficult problems addressed in a difficult book of the Bible, confronting not only the controversial issues that always face the church, but also the spiritual dangers that lurk behind them."
- Philip Graham Ryken, Senior Minister, Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia

"Twelve Challenges Churches Face is a careful exposition of 1 Corinthians. It is both theological and practical in its goal to foster healthy churches. You will be edified and encouraged by Pastor Dever's treatment of important issues that confront the church on a daily basis."
- Daniel L. Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
