Scripture warns believers of hypocrisy‚ÄĒcalled the ‚Äúleaven of the Pharisees‚ÄĚ‚ÄĒand its potential to spread quickly in the church. Outwardly appearing as devout religion, this legalism hides destructive pride, idolatry, and even apostasy. Unfortunately, pharisaism is still a problem among evangelicals today. How does Jesus instruct the church to recognize and defeat one of its deepest theological issues?

In this clear, compelling call to spiritual reformation, Michael Reeves helps believers reject pharisaism and embrace gospel integrity.

Studying three essentials of Christian doctrine that the Pharisees misunderstood‚ÄĒtheir approach to Scripture, understanding of salvation, and disregard of regeneration‚ÄĒReeves shows readers how to embrace a biblical, Trinitarian, and creedal understanding of the gospel necessary for true reformation.


- Teaches readers about revelation, redemption, and regeneration.

- Addresses the threat of hypocrisy in the church, and tackles in-house issues from partisanship to pragmatism.

A Great Resource for Pastors and Congregations.

Jesus warned us about becoming like the Pharisees, and Michael Reeves reminds us in this winsome and penetrating book that we need to heed that warning today. We all are prone to trusting in ourselves and longing for the praise of people instead of resting and delighting in the gospel of God’s grace. We never move beyond the gospel or the need to repent of our self-dependence, and thus this book is a spiritual tonic for our souls.

In Evangelical Pharisees, Michael Reeves addresses a subtle but fatal threat facing the church today. Christ‚Äôs diagnosis of the heart of the Pharisee was that ‚Äėthey loved the glory that comes from man more than the glory that comes from God (John 12:43).‚Äô If we want to preserve the purity of our faith, we must do more than hold fast to our confessions and creeds. We must humbly examine ourselves and ask whether the celebrity culture of our day and the tribalism that is on the rise within our ranks are fueled by something more akin to the motivations that drove the Pharisees of Christ‚Äôs time than we would like to admit. Evangelical Pharisees is a great place to begin that inquiry.
