Reviews - What do customers think about Deacons: Servant Models In The Church (Revised)?
Primarily for Baptists Jan 12, 2007
Of the books currently available on the subject of deacons, this one is about in the middle. Written from a Baptist point of view, it sees the office of deacon through that lens. (By the same token, the Catholics have their own unique idea of what a deacon should be. You can read about that in The Liturgical Ministry of Deacons by Michael Kwatera.)
The first 60% of Webb's book is focused on the character and conduct of deacons, how they are elected and ordained, etc. Only in the last third do you get much about the actual work deacons are called to do. I would have appreciated more unpacking of Acts 6, and more on the actual work of serving widows, orphans and others in need. (Mercy ministry.)
If that's more of what you are looking for, see The New Testament Deacon: The Church's Minister of Mercy by Alexander Strauch.
