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.

John G in Ozark5 Stars Out Of 5Best EverMay 21, 2015John G in OzarkQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a must read for all churches. Every area of the book is spot on. Many of the candidates for Deacon were identified, and some detected as not worthy. A program including this book and the study guide is essential should you wish to have a Holy Spirit filled Deaconate.
Lavonnie Erskine5 Stars Out Of 5October 27, 2009Lavonnie ErskineI 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.
David R. Bess2 Stars Out Of 5March 2, 2009David R. BessThere 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.
Rev. J. Puskar4 Stars Out Of 5February 11, 2004Rev. J. PuskarA 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.
