Synopsis:

Recommended by Booklist for addition to library's core collection for general works on religion.

A straightforward guide to the rituals and celebrations of the major religions and denominations in the United States and Canada from the perspective of an interested guest of any other faith. How to Be a Perfect Stranger is based on information obtained from authorities of each religion.

These easy-to-use guidebooks help the well-meaning guest of any other faith feel at ease, participate to the fullest extent possible, and avoid violating anyone's religious principles―while enriching their own spiritual understanding.

What will happen? What do I do? What do I wear? What do I say? When is it OK to leave? What should I avoid doing, wearing, or saying? What are their basic beliefs? Should I bring a gift?

These are just a few of the basic questions answered in How to Be a Perfect Stranger, Vols. 1 and 2, two books that belong in every living room, library, and office. Originally published in hardcover by Jewish Lights Publishing, these updated and expanded trade paperback editions now include information for the Canadian branches of each faith, plus an added chapter on the largest Protestant denomination in Canada, The United Church of Canada.

From the Publisher: We encourage all people of faith to read it, refer to it often, and use it as their guide when visiting other communities of faith.
Rev. Ken Brooker Langston, Director of Education, The Interfaith Alliance

You'll never again feel uncomfortable attending services of a religion not your own, after reading this wonderful book.
Rabbi Jack Bemporad, Director of the Center for Christian-Jewish Understanding, Sacred Heart University
