Adams, Jay E. Handbook of Church Discipline. Grand Rapids, Michigan: Zondervan, 1986. A very useful small book that takes a sound approach to church discipline.
Alston, Wallace M., Jr. The Church. Atlanta: John Knox Press, 1984. A volume in a helpful series, “Guides to the Reformed Tradition,” edited by John H. Leith and John W. Kuykendall. This is a readable and profitable book, but is now out of print.
Anslie, James L. The Doctrines of Ministerial Order in the Reformed Churches of the 16th and 17th Centuries. Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1940. A very helpful historical overview that is worth finding in a theological library or from a used book dealer.
Aulen, Gustaf. Eucharist and Sacrifice. Edinburgh: Oliver & Boyd, 1958. Bishop Aulen, one of the great Lutheran theologians of our time, directs attention to the sacrifice motif in the thought of Luther, Irenaeus, Cyprian and the apostle Paul.
Avis, Paul D. The Church in the Theology of the Reformers. Atlanta: John Knox Press, 1981. A serious academic study of the marks of the church as tied to its ministry and mission.
Baillie, D. M. The Theology of the Sacraments. New York: Charles Scribner’s Sons, 1957. Baillie, late professor of systematic theology in the University of St. Andrews, was an able writer but not always a confessionalist in his views.
