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