As someone who at one point in his life scorned the idea of organised religion this book was great help in my decision to go back to church and become an Episcopalian. The book easily explains, what is some time difficult to understand, mainly the three thoughts of scripture, reason, and tradition. It also neatly summarises the "middle way". A good start if interested in Episcopal belief or if you are like myself are looking for a church to belong to that accepts the complexities of human nature.

This short book is a great introduction to the Episcopal way of thinking. Rev. Westerhoff does a great service to the reader by showing through his very readable prose what makes the Episcopal Church both Catholic and Protestant. For the Cathoic reader, one will immediately feel and understand the kinship of the Episcopal Church with the Roman one, and also appreciate the very fundamental differences in theological and speculative freedom offered by the Anglican approach. The Anglican Way is predicated on the three legged stool of scripture, tradition and reason - and Rev. Westerhoff used all three expertly in this little book to explain a People Called Episcopalians.

I give this books to adults who want to explore the essentials of Anglicanism as received by the Episcopal Church. It covers all the essentials in short readable chapters. I find that it helps seekers from other Christian churches get a firm footing in the humus of the via media.

This book told me all I needed to know to become an Episcopalian.

This little book does an excellent job of explaining what it means to be an Episcopalian: what they believe, how they worship and how they govern themselves. All that can be very confusing to a newcomer, but Westerhoff explains it simply, without dumbing it down. The book is a quick, informative, and entertaining read for people just coming into the Episcopal Church and a good refresher course for longtime Episcopalians.

this was very helpful for me when I started working for an Episcopal church and was unfamiliar with the denomination

Very disappointed. Not at all what I expected.
John Westerhoff does a splendid job of explaining the Anglican tradition and the Episcopal Church's connection to it in a small, reader-friendly book. It is especially useful for people who are coming into the Episcopal Church from other faith traditions, and the book's price makes it possible to order quantities for giving to newcomers. At a time when the Anglican Communion and The Episcopal Church are at ever-increasing odds, his work is a valuable reminder of TEC's roots and the faith that has grounded her for a very long time.
