A short book, three essays, that is quick to read. Seems to be intended for the interested Catholic, not an academic focus, although several pages of citations could lead you quite deeply, very quickly. The primary focus is that deacons are not priests, and ordaining women deacons does not mean you will have women priests. Nothing really new in this for me, but for someone less entwined in Church minutiae it could clarify issues. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0809147432, Paperback)

The tremendous growth of the permanent order of deacon in the Church carries with it lingering questions about women deacons. The Church s evident need for more women in ministry demands careful exploration and evaluation of the historical roots, contemporary ecclesial realities, and creative future possibilities for including women in the diaconate. In these three essays, originally written for this volume, Professors Macy, Ditewig and Zagano evaluate the question of women deacons from the historical, contemporary, and future perspectives in conversation with one another and with the whole Church. The result is essential reading for anyone interested in the nature and exercise of diaconate in the contemporary Catholic Church..
