If I have a complaint about this book, it's that I feel too much time is spent on theological justification for needing to welcome people, which just seems stupidly obvious to me. On the other hand, I'm not the audience that needs convincing.
I love the stories and experiences that this book brings together; it provides a great spoonful of sugar that is so helpful in small groups and vestries. Don't hesitate -- add this to your cart right now!
Thus, the targeted audience is the PC progressive liberal mainline Episcopalians whose metropolitan churches are in decline and desire to attract LGBTs to survive; potential readers should note this is small percentage of the Anglican Communion. The Anglican Communion has an estimated 85 million members world wide with 34 provinces. The 600,000 active members of the Episcopal Church in the US is about 0.7%. The book cannot be recommended to the other 99.3% of the Anglican Communion, of which the Anglican Church of North America exists. The book was written in 2006 prior to the split, where many aligned themselves non-white[-European] lead Provinces (e.g. Africa, Asia and South America). So, they don't fit the book's leadership, dominant power model of "white[-European] lead."
The five stars is based on how well the book was written and organized, but had I known the target audience I would not have purchased it. So, ye potential readers be advised.
