by The Rev. Christopher Yaw
It's an amazing time to be an Episcopalian! This brilliant little book invites both newcomers and long-time Episcopalians to take a fresh look at all the Episcopal Church has to offer. Chris Yaw uses his journalism skills to tackle church history, modern changes and deeply rooted theology in a light-hearted, down-to-earth, very readable style that helps us look at who we are and who God is calling us to be.

'I have to admit that I continually have difficulty detailing what being bishops, even as being adult, because sometimes it is simplest compare Episcopal Church to other domination rather than describe it with its own definition. "The Church Episcopal is like... the Roman Catholic Church... but we are more liberal. We have similar traditions... but the priests can marry."
Now this may begin to change with the help of Chris Yaw's, "Jesus was Episcopal book (and You can be one Too"): A Guide for newcomers to the Episcopal Church. The book offers a pleasant and full description of the heritage, traditions and liturgy of the Episcopal Church. Through eccentric anecdotal stories and detailed historical stories, the book presents a characterization that means to be episcopal that is completely yours. Humorous and fun from the first page to the last, is the perfect book for individuals seeking to learn more about the faith or as a resource for new members and confirmation classes.'

The 15-session study guide allows a group to work through each chapter of Jesus Was An Episcopalian in a simple 45-60 minute program. Each session can be a stand-alone program on a single topic or can be combined with other sessions to create adult forums, discussion groups or a confirmation or newcomer's class.
