The Vicar's FAQ
Full Product Description
Whether vicars really only work on Sundays?
What’s the difference between Catholic and Protestant, and which is the Church of England anyway?
What Christians really believe about sex, war or angels?
Why everyone’s so worked up about the question of same-sex marriage?
The Vicar’s FAQ aims to answer all those questions you always wanted to ask a vicar but either never dared to ask, never had the chance to ask or perhaps feared you might not get a straight answer! Caroline Symcox’s lively question-and-answer format provides a clear, contemporary introduction to the Christian faith and the workings of the Church of England: covering everything from what it’s like to be a vicar, how the Church developed and what Christians believe, to what they think on key ethical issues.
Caroline Symcox is a priest and curate at St Mary’s Church, Amersham. She is the published author of several science fiction audio dramas and short stories, as well as a number of critical essays, and enjoys exploring the dialogue between religion and science fiction.

The Vicar's FAQJohnny Douglas, via The Good Book Stall
Ordination to the role of public ministry holds a public interest, and this is a critical help to our cultural engagement with vestments, process, and some of the Anglican way. The Vicar's FAQ is a clear, contemporary introduction to the Christian faith through the lens of the anglican church.
It's an attractive concept that marries content and passion, quirks and methodology. In places the gospel and the historic formularies of the faith entrusted to gospel ministry feel somewhat lacking. Yet there's plenty of easily-digested detail, story and examples, with a nice pace and interest level. Its got a reference quality, with a accessible feel to it.
It does somewhat feel as though you are hearing your local, middle-of-the-road, very likeable Vicar answer questions from a GSCE church visit. And that's what it is..... A bitesize gift. A valid lens on the life of an—albeit somewhat stereotypical—Church of England vicar. Earthy wisdom, fresh summaries and more than a dash of fun!

"This is a brilliantly conceived book which manages to combine easy access with earthy wisdom. It has more answers than most of us have questions – which is part of the fun. If trying to understand the life, beliefs and behaviour of the church seems like a personal assault course, this book is the answer." - John Pritchard, Bishop of Oxford.
"This is a brilliant introductory guide to all the perplexing issues, questions and puzzles one can face when trying to navigate through the highways and byways of church life. Essential reading for all those who need an instant map and compass for finding their way through the myriad maze of churches, deaneries and dioceses. A simple book on a complex subject is just what was needed." - Martyn Percy, Principal of Ripon College Cuddesdon.
