Product Description

Calvin recognized two kinds of deacons: those who administered alms and those who cared for the poor and sick. Johnson, a regular columnist for Presbyterian Outlook, looks at the office's basis in Scripture; how it has been understood historically; modern-day questions, including gender issues; as well as its role in the overall ministry of the church. 85 pages, softcover. Geneva Press.

Publisher's Description

In this highly useful book, Earl S. Johnson, Jr. explores the role of the deacon in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). The author explains the freedom for churches to define the roles of deacons while also supplying many helpful suggestions. Johnson examines the ministry as it is described in sections of the Book of Order and analyzes how the word "deacon" is used in Scripture. In addition, Johnson provides historical information regarding the inclusion of women and offers innovative ways to incorporate the ministry of deacons into the larger ministry of the church. Fully revised based on the new Form of Government of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), this book is invaluable for new deacons preparing for their roles, while also helping pastors and leaders who are training prospective deacons.
