John Collins, author of the groundbreaking study Diakonia, explores the pastoral implications of a new scholarly understanding of the role of deacons in the Early Church.

John J. Collins is Holmes Professor of Old Testament Criticism and Interpretation at Yale University Divinity School.

"Deacons and the Church is a valuable addition to dialogues about ministry. It enables us to make a highly desirable synthesis of deacons as agents of the church, ordained to the mission of the bishop, and deacons as ministers of charity. Collins' arguments are challenging, and ultimately convincing." –Ormonde Plater, author of Deacons in the Liturgy


"...beneficial, not only to the deacons, but also to the congregations they serve."
—Rev. Frances S. Ryan, The Living Church
