In this highly useful book, Earl Johnson explores the role of the deacon in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and its office as a ministry of sympathy, witness, and service.

    The book provides a good overview of the functions of Presbyterian deacons. It does not offer much in the way of specifics when it deals with the most important idea of all. How can we beef up the role of deacons to meet the needs in a modern day world.
