Except for Bibles and Hymnbooks, no other book has been read and appreciated by as many United Church people. From what to wear and where to sit in church to theology and ethics, Ralph Milton covers it all with his signature easygoing style. Updated with new information, and expanded to reflect a church that is reconciling the past and celebrating the future, this third edition is both informative and revealing.
