As a fledgling Episcopalian, I learned not only about the liturgy and sacraments, but also the origins and meanings of the various rituals that differ substantially from those I had been raised with in the Presbyterian church. As a lifelong Christian, I learned more about the Bible and how best to study it. I also came away with new feelings about prayer, that are not unique to the Episcopal church.
The book was not only educational, but it fascinated me. Having just experienced Holy Week, for example, I learned why the Great Easter Vigil is the most important day in the Episcopal faith. The service itself is magnificent, but understanding its meaning made it even more dramatic and moving.
Jenifer Gamber made the Episcopal church come alive for me. Her writing style made what could have been a dry subject fascinating. My Faith, My Life would make a great gift to new Episcopalians and to those who need a refresher course. Father Lou advised me well.
At 183 pages, My Faith, My Life is a well-written, complete, and understandable introduction to the Episcopal Church. While right as an introduction for teenagers, it should prove just as valuable for adults seeking to understand the Episcopal Church. It provides provides the basics, a clear framework for understanding both the spiritual church and the organizational church. The framework should make it easier to integrate the sermons, lessons, readings, and other experiences in the Church into a consistent theology and sense of mission.
