The manual features three sections.

  •                 Presbyterian Documents. A guide to the PC (USA) ‘Book of Confessions’ and ‘Book of Order’. Includes a ‘ReadingGuide to the Book of Order’.
  •                 Essential Tenets. At ordination Elders and Deacons are asked to affirm their belief in the ‘Essential Tenets’ of the faith. With a little help from Jack Rogers this section offers some food for thought.
  •                 Appendix. A ‘Top 10 list’, Duties of Session and Duties of Deacons.
