Item description for Always Open: Being an Anglican Today by Richard Giles...

Overview
Seventy million assorted individuals comprise a church family that is renowned for its rich diversity. Christians of all shades of belief together make up the Anglican Communion, a fellowship of churches that extends around the world and includes the Episcopal Church in the United States. At its best, the spirit of openness that marks this fellowship is a sign of openness to the Holy Spirit. Few Anglicans would presume to have "arrived" spiritually, and the door is always open to all who are seeking God. Whether you are a "cradle" Episcopalian or are exploring the denomination, Always Open is an excellent introduction to Anglican beliefs and practices. Down-to-earth and good humored, Always Open explains the essentials of the Anglican approach to authority, the Bible, social and moral questions, dialogue with people of other faiths, and much, much more.

Reviews - What do customers think about Always Open: Being an Anglican Today?

Anglican/Episcopal Church 101  Jan 13, 2009
First off, I am a "cradle" Episcopalian so I am very familiar with the Anglican way. I really enjoyed reading this book. Often I laughed at the humor of the author. Frequently I took out my highlighter to underline a meaningful passage. Many times I yelled YES!! This book is an easy read and would be excellent for a book study. It did a great job discussing the Anglican approach to authority, the Bible and ethics. I believe that if more people (including clergy) really understood the founding principles of the Anglican Church there would be a whole lot less tension (verging on schism)in our church today. In the words of Queen Elizabeth I "There is only one Christ, Jesus... All else is a dispute over trifles."
 
Everything You Want to Know Without Being Prosletyzed  Dec 21, 2005
I hate books about churches that "try too hard". This one doesn't. It's "playful", intriguing, even entertaining without insulting your intelligence. I admit some bias. As an Anglican
convert its hard to fault a book like this. Its brevity gives the reader enough to spur on one's own research including visit to a local church to see if it matches what is described in the book. The author seemsat home with many Anglican clergy and associates I have met over the years. You won't be disappointed.
