Product Description

A keen interest in the diaconate is sweeping through today's church. Who are the deacons, what do they do, and why are they important? Claiming that the modern church has a distorted understanding of the New Testament deacon, Strauch examines relevant Scripture to help you better understand God's design for this vital ministry. 192 pages, softcover from Lewis & Roth.

Publisher's Description

Deacons, as the New Testament teaches are to be involved in a compassionate ministry of caring for the poor and needy. The deacons' ministry, therefore, is one that no Christ--centered, New Testament church can ever afford to neglect.

    I used the New Testament deacon book for all my Deacon training and I find it to be a wondeful tool to help new and regular deacons with their new walk. I have tried a number of different book but none as explict as New Testament. Thank you.

    There is a lot of good Biblical information here on the ministry of Deacons, but the author's case is not clearly stated. As I understand it, he is attempting to define this ministry role not as a position of leadership, but a position of service and mercy. This book would serve as a good reference work on the Biblical basis of the Deacon, but I would not recommend it as something to offer to a newly-ordained Deacon. There are other titles on the market that are much more streamlined and easy to follow than this one.

    A very helpful resource!This addresses what a deacon is, biblically, not traditionally.Modern churches have morphed the deacon into either a "board member," or simply a "yes man" to the pastor.This helps discover what the scriptures really say.My only beef is that I disagree with his assessment of the "deaconess." I feel that such a role does exist, biblically. Also, we see the deaconess very early in the history of the church. Women serving women, officially. A good thing to have.
