Everything you wanted to know but didn't know enough to ask Mar 2, 2010
I ordered these for our Lenten inquiry class. Not only is the book informative it is highly entertaining. All the participants are enjoying their journey learning about the Episcopal Church.
A Must Have For All Newbies Feb 5, 2010
I am new to the Episcopal church and this book was very handy. Lots of valuable information (even if I knew most of it from my previous church experience) It really helps you to understand the basics of going to church an dhow to be a better church attendee. If your new to church in general or to the Episcopal faith this is the book you should get first before you go to your first service.
Great book! Sep 13, 2009
I just joined an Episcopal church this summer and will soon be received into it. This book was very helpful to me. I like the lighthearted way it was written and the fact is was not too theological like some of them I read. It is easy to understand and I love the easy to use index so, when I have a question I can find the answer fast.

Delivered quickly and in perfect condition. I liked it so much I got one for a friend and will probably get more as gifts.
Other Much Better Choices to learn about Episcopalians May 18, 2009
This book might be amusing to people who are already familiar with the Episcopal Church. I would never suggest it to anyone who was seriously looking to learn about the Episcopal faith. It does not live up to the title of "Handbook" There are many other books about the Episcopal Church that do a much better job. Although there are some very good pages in this book the presence of the other flippant and incorrect information greatly diminishes their usefulness. I am disappointed that Morehouse would publish this book.
