This 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.
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.
