Mr. Michael C. Morrow
An interesting book of rules, but with a major error.

This is a good way to introduce someone to Christianity and the Episcopal Church. It is also a good reminder of rules for life-long Episcopalians to follow. However, the book contains a major error. It states on page 27 that the Bible contains 66 (39 OId Testamant, 27 New Testament) books for us Episcopalians, more for our Roman Catholic friends. Such a statement ignores the fact that the Episcopal Church recognizes 15 books of the Apocrypha as part of the Bible as well. The King James Bible included the books of the Apocrypha; in fact the Archbishop of Canterbury stated in 1615 that no Bibles were to be published without the Apocrypha, on pain of 1 year's imprisonment (thank goodness that is no longer in effect!) The Bible used in the crowning of the King or Queen of Great Britain must include the books of the Apocrypha. As Bruce Metzger indicates in his book, "An Introduction to the Apocrypha," after the publication of the Revised Standard Version (RSV) in 1952, the General Convention of the Episcopal Church asked that a translation of the Apocrypha be included for the RSV. The National Council of Churches then authorized that the Apocrypha be translated and included in some editions of the RSV, which was completed in 1957. The Lectionary of the 1979 Prayer Book and the Revised Common Lectionary include readings from the Apocrypha. The 1979 Prayer Book includes readings and passages from the Apocrypha in various places, including the services for Morning and Evening Prayer and in the Burial Service. As Robert Dentan said in his book "The Apocrypha, Bridge of the Testaments," no one deliberately buys a book with a missing section. A Bible without an Apocrypha is very much like a book with a missing section. A Bible without an Apocrypha is an incomplete Bible and there is a considerable gap in the story which it tells. Given the fact that Anglicans have always considered these books part of the Bible, and the Episcopal Church has sought to include it in Bibles after it had been left out of many Bibles in the past, the authors clearly erred by failing to mention the status of these books for the Episcopal Church.

This is a great book to explain what being an Episcopalian is. Such a positive explanation. Love it!
