Publishers Description
This book is a highly readable, comprehensive study that has established itself as the definitive work on the diaconate. Drawing upon original sources, the book provides valuable insights into the development of the office of the deacon in the early church and situates it within the context of the church s total ministry. Dr. Barnett contends that a radical change in the nature and understanding of the church s ministry took place in the fourth century. A ministry that had included the whole people of God in a horizontal, organic structure gave way to one that was clerical and hierarchical. This change, among other factors, eventually transformed the diaconate into an inconsequential, transitional office on the way to the priesthood. Responding to the present-day revival of the diaconate in the Roman Catholic, Episcopal, Lutheran, and other churches, Barnett calls for a restoration of the office to its original place as full and equal order, thus re-creating the great symbol of the servant ministry that Christ gave to all the church. James Monroe Barnett, now living in retirement in Omaha, is the former rector of Trinity Episcopal Church, Norfolk, NE.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Full Order  Dec 26, 2007
This is a very profound study of the Diaconate and how it developed from the biblical times to the present in the Christian Church. The Deacon is a full and equal order as the Presbyterate in the sense that is a vocation, a call from God to serve his people, and not just a kind of minor order in the Church of God. Deaconship, if lived in it's full manifestation is the most wonderful vocation, because at the end, we all are called to be minor in order to become the major in the kingdom of God.
WE are all called in the spirit of "Diakonos" or in the spirit to serve others.
