This was quite good. Quick. Direct to the point. Helpful for churchmen. It feels a bit like an appendix to his more thorough work on Biblical Eldership; but admittedly the texts in Scripture regarding deacons and their work is significantly less.
With the texts there are, Strauch does a deft job of demonstrating what the scope and role for the diaconate is, as well as the great need for godly mercy ministry in the church. This stirred up a few thoughts that I’ll hope to get to in the coming days. This was very helpful. Highly recommended for men who desire to serve the Church, and do so biblically.
