In this highly useful book, Earl S. Johnson, Jr. explores the role of the deacon in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). The author explains the freedom for churches to define the roles of deacons while also supplying many helpful suggestions. Johnson examines the ministry as it is described in sections of the Book of Order and analyzes how the word "deacon" is used in Scripture. In addition, Johnson provides historical information regarding the inclusion of women and offers innovative ways to incorporate the ministry of deacons into the larger ministry of the church. Fully revised based on the new Form of Government of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), this book is invaluable for new deacons preparing for their role, while also helping pastors and leaders who are training prospective deacons.

Earl S. Johnson, Jr. is an adjunct professor of religion at Siena College and a regular columnist for Presbyterian Outlook. Now retired, he was previously Pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Johnstown, New York. He is the author of several books, including Selected to Serve, Second Edition, The Presbyterian Trustee, and Witness without Parallel: Eight Biblical Texts That Make Us Presbyterian, published by Geneva Press.
