What does the vestry do? Is there a difference between a rector and a vicar? What exactly is an undercroft, anyway? Young people—and their families—can turn to this user-friendly, clearly written resource to learn the meanings of many of the unique words that are part of the Anglican tradition.

The Anglican Young People’s Dictionary is a concise, engaging, easy-to-read dictionary of some 150 often-used but frequently misunderstood words used by Anglicans. Written in an approachable, kid-friendly style, it’s an excellent resource for teens approaching Confirmation, as well as students in parish Christian formation programs. It’s also a useful tool for parents and parish educators, and a handy reference for church newcomers.

June English, an Episopalian, has written several books for children and young adults, including Mission Earth and the Encyclopedia of the United States at War. Much of her career has focused on writing profiles of children and adolescents in areas of political upheaval in the north of Ireland, Eastern Europe, and the Soviet Union.
