City on a Hill by Philip Graham Ryken

Philip Ryken is pastor of a great historic church, the Tenth Avenue Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia. Though located in the inner city, it is a thriving church with special emphasis on small home Bible study groups located throughout the metropolitan area. Ryken is widely known as an evangelical leader and speaker.

City on a Hill is currently being read by our church leaders. It is a book on “how to do church” and basically argues for a return to biblical principles (reference the subtitle, Reclaiming the Biblical Pattern for the Church in the 21st Century) as opposed to the adoption of worldly methods that has been so popular in recent years. Virtually all aspects of church activity are covered including worship, discipleship, missions and many others. Ryken’s work is very biblically based, but it also reflects a wealth of real-world experience. The book has great depth, but is very easy to read and follow. If church government and ministry interest you, this would be an excellent resource.
