The Episcopal Handbook: Revised Edition (Paperback)
A classic best-selling manual on Episcopalian faith for lifelong followers, newcomers, and those wishing to sample and explore the beliefs and organization of the denomination.
The original Episcopal Handbook, published in 2008, was an instant classic and has been a best-seller ever since. Still providing helpful and insightful information about the Episcopal ethos with a certain amount of whimsy and complete accessibility, this revision maintains the best features of the original work, but adds an update and an expansion on the church today.
This revision highlights Episcopal diversity--including more women and people of color in the biographical material--and focuses more on Episcopal, rather than Anglicans. Additions to this edition include updated illustrations, an expanded glossary, and new sections on church governance, the origins of religious belief, and a capsule summary of church history.
The Handbook is suitable for use in Sunday school, confirmation classes, inquirer sessions--and for everyone from visitors to vestries.
