One of a series of ""Why I am..."" books. The Chaplain of Columbia University, Dr. John Krumm, states effectively and engagingly the reason why he has found the Episcopal Church a congenial religious home. It is his own personal ""apologia"" of a pilgrimage through doubt and questioning to a vibrant faith in the church of his choice. He tells what an Episcopalian is, the church's relation to the Anglican communion, and how it is organized and how it carries on its work. He answers questions that are frequently asked about the Episcopal church! ""Did Henry VIII found it?"" (""No!"") ""Does the Episcopal Church have a real priesthood?"" etc. Dr. Krumm feels that Episcopalians are making a great contribution to the intellectual currents of American life. He shares this conviction with his readers. Episcopal clergy especially will find a ready use for this book as a gift to inquirers, but many Episcopalian laymen will also be glad to read and own this book. There are three million in the United States.
