The yokefellows and I have just completed reading and reviewing The Baptist Deacon by Robert Naylor. We passed out the books at the November Deacon/Yokefellow meeting and have been reviewing it together by e-mail. I have included the links for the summary of each chapter. If you would like a copy of the book to read for yourself, please let me know and I will get you one.
Dr. Naylor was a pastor and also president of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He was president emeritus when I attended and still welcomed all new students. His book, The Baptist Deacon was written in 1955 but the principles for deacons are still valid and useful as we work to better understand our role as deacons and yokefellows.
Let me know what you think about the book. I value your input.
