Members One of Another by Eric Lane
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Crisp and practical, Eric Lane writes from a generation ago as an independent Baptist. Yet this presbyterian pastor found a lot of gold! The first two chapters are a great argument for membership. Middle chapters orient us to what formal membership looks like practically. The last chapter has two strengths: it lays out four categories of sin that lead to church discipline, and it calls for churches to recognize each other's discipline, instead of receiving people who have been disciplined by another church.
Excellent resource for both church elders and the layman who needs an introduction to church membership.
