Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 145379798X, Paperback)

This edition revised May 20, 2013. Deacons: Serving God, Serving God's People looks at the office of deacon in the New Testament. Confusion about the offices in the church can lead to frustration, hindered growth, and a gradual erosion of faithfulness to the Bible. This book helps to alleviate such confusion. Acts 6 is examined closely to see how deacons and elders are to relate together. 1 Timothy 3:8-13 is exposited to see what kind of person should be a deacon and what their role in the church might be. Appendices provide a possible approach to get from identifying to commissioning deacons, and look at deacons in three other traditions. The book is written to be understandable for a broad audience, but is especially applicable to church leaders of all kinds. Daniel Baker (B.A. Kenyon College, M.A. Ashland Theological Seminary) serves as a pastor at Sovereign Grace Church (Apex, NC).
