"The Diaconal Church presents a debate about the nature and significance of an innovative model of church described in David Clark's book Breaking the Mould of Christendom: Kingdom Community, Diaconal Church and the Liberation of the Laity, published by Epworth in November 2005. In this symposium, 13 scholars from a range of Christian denominations and countries discuss the key themes which underpin the model of the diaconal church."--BOOK JACKET.
