"This book is intended to be a way of learning about the Episcopal Church. In writing it I have, of course, had newcomers in mind. I was once a newcomer to the Episcopal Church -- a number of years ago. .... In it I have tried to bring together all the words for services of the church, its vestments, its buildings, and its organization that might interest, puzzle, or confuse the newcomer." -- Intro.
