101 Reasons to Be Episcopalian

Louie Crew

Feb/2003, 128 Pages, Paperback, 4 x 6

ISBN-13: 9780819219251



A delightful compendium of insightful, disarming, and sometimes funny reasons why Episcopalians are members of the Church.

"The Episcopal Church is a secret too well kept, " says compiler Louie Crew. "Many are starved for what we experience daily and too easily take for granted." With these words, Crew invited thousands of people online to participate in creating a list of reasons to be Episcopalian. Portions of that list, and many additional contributions, fill this charming, pocket-sized celebration of the Episcopal Church.

These 101 thoughtful, poignant, and sometimes humorous responses not only entertain but also teach about the Church's gifts. From the beauty of its prayer and liturgy, to its inclusiveness, and its reliance on Scripture, tradition, and reason in balance with one another, there is much to celebrate in the Anglican/Episcopal tradition.

101 Reasons to Be Episcopalianmakes the perfect gift for confirmands, newcomers, and anyone interested in dialogue about why we are Episcopalians.
