Henry Webb has made a significant contribution to the ministry of local churches with his recently released book Deacons: Servant Models in the Church. It is extremely well written, easy to read, and faithful to the Scriptures. Pastors and churches would be wise to place this book into the hands of all their deaconsespecially those who are newly ordained. It is an invaluable tool!
Without doubt, the role of deacons in our churches is a matter of utmost importance. Good, functioning deacons who protect the fellowship of the church and serve the church with humility is one of the greatest needs today. Henry Webb has skillfully written about the place of deacons and their role as servant models in the church. These pages will help to solidify the biblical ministry of the deacons and encourage deacons to serve in the spirit of Christ and the church to appropriately respond to that ministry.
Henry Webb has captured the spirit of the New Testament deacon with amazing clarity. The church is in desperate need to great leaders. God's Word clearly states that to be great we must become servants. The perfect model of the deacon is a selfless servant leader. Deacons: Servant Models in the Church is a model textbook for every pastor and every deacon.
