This illustrated dictionary for the Episcopal Church is an essential reference to its terminology, worship, structure, and polity. Originally intended as a resource for new members and confirmands in the Episcopal Church, since it was first published in 1985 the dictionary has become increasingly popular with clergy, vestries, and other lay ministers and leaders. This entirely new edition has been expanded, revised, and updated to include new terms that have come into use since it was first published, as the language Episcopalians use to describe their faith, worship, and common life continues to evolve. A Dictionary for Episcopalians is an ideal reference book for new members, seminarians, clergy, confirmation and inquirers’ classes, altar guilds, church school teachers, and anyone who wants to learn more about the Episcopal Church. With illustrations and a pronunciation guide, it is a useful addition to every parish library and sacristy.

What People are Saying About This
An easy-to-read beginner’s descriptive guide to the sometimes strange world of ecclesial language . . . should be helpful to both new and lifelong Episcopalians.
"I heartily recommend John Wall's Dictionary....It is well-written, and considerate of differing positions and points of view...should be in use in every parish."
