Good Book. Great Price.

Westminster Bookstore (online) is having a phenomenal price on the recent book Finding Faithful Elders and Deacons by Thabiti Anyabwile. If you are a deacon or a church elder, want to be one someday, or simply want to know more about what God says about these roles I encourage you to check it out along with some of the other great deals on 9 Marks books that they are selling.
