Westminster John Knox Press The Presbyterian Deacon: An Essential Guide

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. This book examines the office as it is described in sections of the Book of Order and analyzes how the word "deacon" is used in Scripture. Biblical texts are explored, historical information regarding the inclusion of women is provided, and innovative ways to incorporate the office into the larger ministry of the church are suggested.

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.
