When Christians fall into sin, how can we restore them? How can we bring them back into the fellowship with more than a superficial apology? These are vital questions, but so often churches stumble at this critical point. Either we ignore the wrongdoing or we banish the wrongdoer. The authors of this groundbreaking book provide a new model for church discipline with the spiritual care team, a small group of mature Christians who voluntarily commit themselves to support and guide a person with special spiritual needs through a process of restoration. In these pages you will find practical guidance on how to form a spiritual care team, how to support the spouse and family of the person being restored, how to integrate professional helpers and the church into the process, and how to provide ongoing care when the main work of the team is complete.
