In his book, On Being Presbyterian, Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) pastor and seminary professor Sean Michael Lucas suggests that being Presbyterian means embracing distinctive beliefs, practices, and stories as one's own. As new members, church officers, and potential Presbyterians explore beliefs such as God as king over all of life, practices such as Presbyterian church government, and stories such as the founding of the PCA, they will understand and move to embrace this way of being Christian.

Written in a non-technical style, On Being Presbyterian is an unique resource for assimilating and equipping believers.
