C.J. Mahaney, a founder, pastor, and church planter of Sovereign Grace preaches on the topic of the church.  I thank God for using this man.  He has contributed much valuable resources in audio and writing.

A couple of years ago, a few other Christians and I went over a book called Why Small Groups? in a weekly Bible study that I used to teach.  The book is edited by C.J. and written by some Sovereign Grace pastors.  The book, which is in relation to the local church, has edified others and myself greatly.  I pray that  it will have an impact upon you as it has for me.  Much strife and conflict in a church you are attending can be avoided if one implements some of the important truths and principles articulated in this book.

I have had the opportunity to speak to this man on many occasions personally; and what I can say about this man is that he is a loving shepherd who dearly loves the church.  I pray that this message will edify you.

He is also the author of a book called, Uneclipsing the Son.
