Reviews - What do our customers think?
Pleasantly surprised.  Mar 8, 2008
This is my first "Welcome to.." book and I was very pleasantly surprised by how straightforward and easy to read it was. The author does a very good job of solidifying key concepts in different parts of the book so that you don't feel like you've forgotten information. I also really liked how tenderly he regards the Episcopal Church without coming across as overly biased toward it.

This book is a very good read, and not at all boring as one reviewer said. I myself finished it in a day and I think it'll be useful in the future if I need to quickly look something up. Also, I might add, it has really good analysis questions at the end of each chapter. That way you think about what you just read and provide an answer that best fits your beliefs.
 
New Comer Episcopal  Jan 18, 2008
As a new comer to the Am. Episcopal Church, I had many questions about the method and rites of worship. This small volume has proved an excellent starter book in understanding some of the history & liturgy, as well as the beliefs and methods of worship of the Episcopal denomination without going into deep evangelical or philosophical treatise. It is not meant to serve as an evangelical tool, but as a beginning book of instruction. I highly recommend this little volume to get started in understanding the ins & outs of the Episcopal worship service and church.
 
Welcome to the Episcopal Church  Apr 16, 2007
Being an Episcopalian for over 50 years, this author provides a very comprehensive overview from the founding to almost current day, very well written for a newcomer or for a refresher.
 
Easy read, fairly good representation.  Jan 9, 2007
Welcome to the Episcopal Church, is a very easy read and a fairly good representation of the Episcopal Churh of the USA as it is today. It describes well the 'middle way' of Anglicans in general, and does artfully skip around the specific political issues currently being discussed within the Church. The reader should be cautioned that there is wide variety within the ECUSA regarding some of the doctrines outlined and, depending on your diocese, actual experiences will be either more protestant or more catholic. For a more scholarly history of the ECUSA and the Anglican Communion, I would recommend Ye Are the Body, by Bonnell Spencer or the writings of Charles Chapman Grafton. Of course, if you really want to learn more about the ECUSA, pick up a copy of The Book of Common Prayer.
 
A lightweight summary  Sep 8, 2005
The Rector at the church where I recently have taken a position allowed as how there are really no good summaries of Episcopalian beliefs. I read this book first and am now delving into Hatchett's Commentary on the American Prayer Book. This book is really Episcopalianism lite. It is, however, possessed of an annotated bibliography that would perhaps be more useful if the author's other works took up less of it. It is not necessarily an easy read because of the weightiness of the subject matter but it is interesting and might be handy as a gift to someone making a general inquiry into what it means to be an American Anglican.
