  • Summary:

    A hilarious, tongue-in-cheek celebration of the foibles of the Frozen Chosen! This Presby 101 handbook uses an advice format to describe Presbyterians by ostensibly addressing new members of the church. But it is a funny primer and survival manual for ALL members of the denomination!

    How to Survive Being a Presbyterian gently skewers the history, worship habits, and the endless committee meetings. And it covers clothing, potluck dinners, and yes, sex – as well as raising kids – all from the Presbyterian viewpoint. It’s the self-help book with a difference. You’ll want to regale your friends with the little quips of the 300-year-old Percy T. Presby, who declares: “Presbyterianism is a series of meetings occasionally interrupted by a worship service.” “The national drink of Presbyterian women is decaf coffee.” “Some Presbyterians believe that a jazz band is the Boston Pops.”
