Ecclesiology Interview

Mark Dever interviews John Hammett (of Southeastern Seminary and author of Biblical Foundations for Baptist Churches: A Contemporary Ecclesiology) and Phil Newton (pastor of Southwoods Baptist Church and author of Elders In Congregational Life: Rediscovering The Biblical Model For Church Leadership).

This is a great discussion of a broad range of ecclesiological issues, including the essential nature of the church, the disappearance of church discipline, multiple elders and senior pastors, the nature of the church's assembly, baptizing children, the relationship between preaching and teaching, and the danger of the gospel being reduced to a prayer.
