Scholarly Works

Sound scholarship about diaconal ministry from the United Church’s diaconal community is a rich resource for diakonia. DUCC members are also conducting research from a Diaconal perspective on theological issues and on the broad practice of ministry.





This is a bibliography of scholarly works that are available on line. The intention is to make the scholarship from the DUCC community available. To arrange for works to be added here contact us at [email protected]
