The Blue Book

[from Episcopal News Service] The Blue Book, the collection of reports to the Episcopal Church’s 77th General Convention of the work completed by its committees, commissions, agencies and boards (CCABs), during the 2010-2012 triennium, will be available both in print and electronically this year.  It can be downloaded from http://www.generalconvention.org/gc/prepare

In addition to reports, the book, at more than 750 pages, also contains more than 150 “A” resolutions that the CCABs have proposed to the General Convention, Most, but not all, “A” resolutions are contained in the Blue Book.

Resolutions may also be submitted to convention by three other groups: bishops (B resolutions); dioceses (C resolutions); and deputies (D resolutions). Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and House of Deputies President Bonnie Anderson assign each resolution as it is received to one of the convention’s legislative committees. Once those assignments are made, resolutions are posted online  here. The deadline for filing any type of resolution is 5 p.m. EDT July 6, the second official day of convention.

The 5.15MB Blue Book file in PDF form includes a table of contents page with jump links to each CCAB report. And this edition of the Blue Book is salmon.

For the first time, the Blue Book will be available in e-book formats, also from Church Publishing. Both versions will be available the week of April 30, according to a press release from the church’s Office of Public Affairs.

Those wishing to purchase a print copy of the Blue Book can pre-order it from Church Publishing Inc. here for $35.

A PDF of the Blue Book in Spanish, El Libro Azul, is also available.
