    1. I read Those Episkopols, by the Rev. Dr. Dennis Maynard, as part of an on-going adult Sunday school class at my parish church. For the most part I enjoyed it. The author presents a short, informal, and readable introduction to the Episcopal Church, based on his own experience as a priest in the Church over the last four decades. He writes that “This book is written out of a profound love and appreciation for the Episcopal Church” (pg. 6) and that “the preceding chapters are dedicated to an [...]

    2. Everything you wanted to know about the Episcopal Church, and less!Actually, Those Episkopals is an enlightening read that sheds some light on the Epicopal Church (the American branch of the Worldwide Anglican Communion). There is a sense of "yeah-us" throughout the book, however there are some very excellent points made that demonstrate clearly that the Episcopal Church is open to discussion (hence some of our members whose knickers are in a twist over the ordination of women, the blessing of s [...]

    3. This a good nuts-and-bolts kind of book for those considering the Episcopal religion. It is somewhat disappointing because it can't decide whether it is going to be heady and esoteric or earthy and pragmatic, but it does give one a good sense of the basic differences to be expected of the church.

    4. This is a great introduction to the Episcopal Church-- addressing many similarities and differences between the Episcopal Church and the Roman Catholic and Protestant traditions. Very approachable.

    5. My wife is helping to coordinate participation of members of our church in a confirmation class given at another nearby church, and this book was assigned by the two clergy members giving the class, along with another book, _Welcome to the Episcopal Church_, by Christopher L. Webber. That book takes what seems to be a more systematic approach, but this book is conversational. Each chapter is the answer to a question the author was asked as he led inquirers' classes over the course of his career [...]

    6. A great read for new, old, and returning Episcopalians alike. This book offers an informative and uplifting look into the history, doctrines, and modern practices of the Episcopal church, and gives a clear understanding of what it means to be an Episcopalian. As a returning parishioner, I found Maynard's explanations to be not only easy to understand, but entertaining as he parallels many other familiar denominations of the Christian church. Overall I found this to be the most valuable resource [...]

    7. I enjoyed this overview of basic Episcopal thoughts on theology and relating to the world. Most of this stuff I have learned and absorbed over the past 3 years, but I appreciated it all in one nice neat packet. If you're at all curious about the Episcopal church, this is an easy and informative read.
