Item description for Your Calling As A Deacon (Your Calling As...) by Gary Straub & James Trader II...

Overview
This resource for individual and group study explores what it means to be a deacon in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Addressing both the leadership and spiritual requirements of the position, Your Calling as a Deason offers new and seasoned deacons the direction, understanding, and encouragement to serve God and church. "Folksy, almost breezy, language disguises serious, insightful spiritual counsel to those seeking to discover their call to diaconal ministry. This long-needed book will contribute greatly to those searching to see if they fit this lay ministry, those already serving as deacons, and those who seek to equip the ministry of the diaconate. Don't let this easily read book keep you from appreciating its depth and its practicality."

Reviews - What do customers think about Your Calling As A Deacon (Your Calling As...)?

"Much needed to be prepared for your calling"  Mar 9, 2010
Your Calling As A Deacon (Paperback)
~ Gary Straub

This book confirmed what God has called me to do. It answered many questions I already had the answers to but had to find within myself. To God be all the Glory!!!!!!!
 
Review of Your Calling As A Deacon  Nov 9, 2009
This book is a very poor treatment of the subject. It gives only a few paragraphs to the New Testament references to deacons, and it gives very general duties and responsibilities of deacons. The strongest point in the book, about the only strong point, is its brief discussion of the role of deacons in various Christian denominations. Even then, its treatment of the Baptist views about deacons is very sparse. The two Baptist sources the authors refer to (both from the American Baptist tradition) are not even the best treatments of this subject among American Baptists.
Having read several good books on this subject from the Baptist tradition, I recommend that you not waste your money on this book.
