The perfect book for inquirers and new members, as well as current Church members who may be unfamiliar with some of the Church’s history, beliefs, and practices. This introduction to the history, polity, spirituality, worship, and outreach of the Episcopal Church is written in an easy-to-read conversational tone, and includes study questions at the end of each chapter, making it an excellent resource for adult parish study and inquirers' classes.
"Welcome to the Episcopal Church makes clear that the worship of God is the most important thing that can be said about us, and that worship is the source for everything else in our life together--our commitment to justice for all people, our mission to those who do not yet know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, and how we should live out out lives in this very complex world." --from the Foreword, The Most Rev. Frank T. Griswold III, Presiding Bishop and Primate
