Most works on elders are written for the pastor or church leader, but this volume speaks directly to the church member. Benjamin Merkle grounds this study about church elders in the Word of God as he clearly and succinctly informs laypeople of the scriptural qualifications and responsiblities of elders and deacons. Then he implores lay men and women to vote wisely concerning church leadership. Why Elders? assumes the voice of the curious church member who reads the Bible with an eye focused on the early church's organizational structure and asks, "Why did they do it the way they did?' and "How can we follow Scripture's prescription for leadership?"
