Item description for Being a Deacon Today: Exploring A Distinctive Ministry in the Cchurch and in the World by Rosalind Brown...

Overview
In very practical and helpful terms, Rosalind Brown explores what it means to be a deacon in today's church. All too often the time spent as a deacon is seen simply as the prelude to priestly ordination. Yet the Bible defines three orders of ministry?deacon, priest, and bishop?each with its own distinctive characteristics and responsibilities. In Being A Deacon Today, Brown explores the three places where deacons minister (the church, the world, and at the margins), the three strands of their ministry (in liturgy, in pastoral care, and as catechists), and the three actions of their ministry (praying, loving, and remembering). This book, excellent for classroom use and for transitional and permanent deacons, will restore a fuller understanding of the diaconal ministry and nurture deacons in their work and spiritual life.

Reviews - What do customers think about Being a Deacon Today: Exploring A Distinctive Ministry in the Cchurch and in the World?

The Vocational Deacon defined for today  Dec 8, 2007
Rosalind Brown's book, Being a Deacon Today, is a must read for every vocational deacon, deacons in training, or anyone feeling a call to this ministry. The information in the Forward by the Bishop of Salisbury alone is worth the price of the book. I would also suggest that all bishops and priests read this one. It gives a clear and detailed description of the vocational diaconate and definitive discussion of the difference between this ministry and the six month transitional diaconate required of all priests.
 
Must Have!!!  Nov 2, 2007
This book is an absolute must have for anyone considering Holy Orders or who have already become a deacon in the Episcopal Church. Parts of this book will speak so loudly to the deacon or aspirant, that they will type them up and read them periodically for encouragement and reinforcement.
