Who will lead us: A study in the development of Biblical offices, with emphasis on the diaconate (paperback) - Leonard J. Coppes
A unique contribution to our understanding of the Church's ministry and offices, this study unfolds their development from Genesis onward, with special emphasis on the diaconate. "Exciting, understandable and encouraging; the best I have read on the subject. Laymen can read, understand and enjoy this book; in some sense, it breaks ground, theologians will want to read it; clarifying and inspiring, pastors and seminary students will profit from it." Richard Knodel, JR.
