Among evangelical Christians, there are widely diverse views on the roles of deacons. What does Scripture actually teach about deacons and their role in the church?
Views range from deacons being the board of directors, to the church building maintenance crew. In writing this completely new book Strauch states that his purpose is "to encourage my deacon friends and fellow church leaders to think more critically about what they are saying, what they are doing, and what the Scripture actually teaches about deacons."
Whatever your view of deacons may be, this study will help you examine in detail the biblical facts ondeacons, alowing those facts to guide your thinking. This book offers the opportuity to build broader agreement among our Bible-believeing chruches as to what deacons do.
This is not simply a revision of Strauch's popular book, "The New Testament Deacon: Minister of Mercy." It is a completely new study with a fresh perspective.
