What’sanice churchlikeyou don? JESUS AND YOUR NICE CHURCH-ftf Richter. Anyone can criticize. . . Richter offers concrete sugges­ tions for improvement in this plain-spoken plea for all Christians to become actively involved in the reform of their own local church. Perceptive criticisms of such contemporary church problems as ineffective preach­ ing and teaching; concern with the trivia of church administration; soft-pedaling of the gospel to avoid hurting the feelings of errant members; and the love of committees are counterbalanced by some simple and practical ideas for local reform. Paper, $1.65 THEY DARE TO HOPE; Student Protest and Chris­ tian Response— Fred Pearson. Protestors, unable to match the power of combined institutions, are frustrated to the point of violence or com­ plete withdrawal. Pearson feels the Christian Church is the only institution that can respond positively to such protest be­ cause the church is committed to a reality outside the social and economic system. He sug­ gests Christians provide goals and direction for social change in America. Paper, $1.65 THE CONTEMPORARY PREACHER AND HIS TASK -D a vid Waite Yohn. An exploration of how ex­ pository preaching can become a profound joy and an exciting adventure for both the preacher and his con­ gregation. This requires dedication and discipline in the roles of pastor, teacher and evangelist but will result in preaching that is sacramental, authoritative and biblical. While at Yale Divinity School the author received the Mersick Prize for Preaching. Paper, $1.95 Ai you r bohselci WM. B. EERDMANS PUBLISHING CO. Grand Rapids, Michigan
