What makes for a healthy church? A large congregation? Plentiful parking? Vibrant music?
You may have read books on this topic before-but not like this one. This new expanded edition of Nine Marks of a Healthy Church is not an instruction manual for church growth. It is a pastor's recommendation of how to assess the health of your church using nine crucial qualities that are neglected by many of today's churches.
Whether you're a church leader or an involved member of your congregation, you can help cultivate these elements in your church, bringing it new life and health for God's glory.


"If you are a Christian leader, be careful of the work you are now holding in your hand: it may change your life and ministry."
D. A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
"This is a foundational work which I highly recommend."
John MacArthur, Pastor, Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California
"I want God's word about the church. I turn with hope and confidence to Mark Dever's radically biblical commitment. Few people today have thought more or better about what makes a church biblical and healthy."
John Piper, Founder,; Chancellor, Bethlehem College and Seminary
"This is the best book I have read on this topic of critical importance."
C. J. Mahaney, Senior Pastor, Sovereign Grace Church of Louisville, Louisville, Kentucky
"Nine Marks of a Healthy Church is required reading for my students in ecclesiology."
Paige Patterson, President, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
"[This book] belongs in the hands of every faithful pastor and all those who pray for reformation in this age."
R. Albert Mohler Jr., President and Joseph Emerson Brown Professor of Christian Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

<健康教會九標誌>-承襲鍾馬田和約翰.斯托得的傳統,狄馬可號召教會重新發現聖經的傳統。在歷史上,教會也許從未如此努力要與文化接軌,卻在這麼做的時候變得那麼不相關!儘管許多現代教會的權威都鼓勵我們要在世界,但是狄馬可提醒我們;我們的呼召是要在這麼做的時候不屬世界。 這本書的內容主要論及教會-是誰,而非教會做什麼。畢竟,<是誰>先於<做什麼>,因為總是-我們是誰決定了我們最終所做的。讓教會就是教會!閱讀此書,即會收穫!
