Modeled on Michael Pollan's best-selling Food Rules: An Eater's Manual, this book seeks to introduce both faith and the Episcopal Church to the seeker with a deft touch through a series of extended one-page epigrams. Taken together, the eight sections comprise a sage and accessible introduction to Christian faith, the Episcopal Church, and how to find a place where the normal experiences of life are best understood as disclosures of the divine. Faith Rules is Episcopal Wisdom literature for the 21st century.
