A must read for all new Disciples churches. This little book is a fantastic introduction to the history, polity and practices of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). As we continue to welcome new congregations into our growing denomination, this is an invaluable tool to help share the great tradition that is the Disciples church. --online review at ChalicePress.com, 5/24/2012
