Item description for Theology of the Diaconate: The State of the Question: The National Association of Diaconate Directors Keynote Addresses, 2004 by Owen F. Cummings, William T. Ditewig & Richard R. Gaillardetz...

Over the past three decades, deacons have proven invaluable in a variety of ministries in the church. Today's deacons serve in the traditional liturgical and sacramental areas, but their duties have grown in the areas of management and leadership. What is a deacon really supposed to do? What did the church fathers intend at Vatican II? Have their job responsibilities really changed from the church's earlier vision?These questions and many others are discussed in this seminal work, which is an up-to-date examination of how the order of the diaconate in the Latin Church relates and is in communion with other orders and their ministries. The authors are Owen F. Cummings, William T. Ditewig, and Richard R. Gaillardetz, who discuss diaconal theology from three differing perspectives. This book is composed of their three keynote speeches delivered the National Association of Deacon Directors in April 2004. It is essential reading for deacons, aspiring deacons, diaconate programs, as well as theologians.

Publishers Description
In these three essays - which were presented as keynote lectures at the 2004 conference of the National Association of Diaconate Directors - Professors Cummings, Ditewig, and Gaillardetz construct theologies of the diaconate in conversation with one another and the church. The result is essential reading for deacons, aspirants to the diaconate, deacon directors, as well as the other orders of the clergy, and the laity.

Reviews - What do customers think about Theology of the Diaconate: The State of the Question?

Theology of the Diaconate  Jan 25, 2006
This book is highly recommended for those wondering about the future of the Roman Catholic Diaconate. Two of the authors are themselves deacons. The third is very much involved in giving lectures, courses and conferences on Church minitries. They look at the past of the Diaconate and speculate about its future.
