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.
