Daniel Cawdrey was a Calvinistic Presbyterian minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He was a man of great consideration, eminently learned, and a noted member of the Westminster Assembly. He preached sometimes to the members of parliament…was ejected from his living at Great Billing, and separated from his friends and his flock by the Act of Uniformity, after having labored, for the edification of his people in that place for 37 years. He was among the best puritan scholars of his day.

Are you your brother’s keeper? In this work, originally titled “Church-Reformation Promoted,” Cawdrey deals with Matthew 18:15-17, “If your brother trespasses against thee, etc.” demonstrating the need and necessity of church discipline, and the importance of it. He shows that church discipline is both corrective and preventive. He also demonstrates that discipline furthers true, biblical Reformation in the Christian’s personal life, in his family life, and in the life of the church. This is a scholarly and biblically faithful work that is a must read for today’s contemporary church, and for every elder that oversees God’s flock.
