There is no higher calling on a Christian's life than that of serving the Lord (Colossians 3:24), His people (Hebrews 6:10), and laboring with the Lord and His people in service to others (1 Corinthians 3:9). Therefore, every Christian needs to develop the heart of a servant.
Faithful deacons are invaluable to a church, not only because of the ministry they perform, but also because of the model for servanthood that they provide. The Material presented in A Brotherhood of Servants will help churches have better deacons and appreciate them more. That's important, but equally important is the fact that church members who read this book will also have a better understanding of what constitutes genuine Christian servanthood. In a very real sense, servanthood is what this book is all about, and this alone, recommends it for general readership by any church.
