What Anglicans Believe An Introduction

by Samuel Wells

What Anglicans Believe An Introduction Synopsis

Born at a time of intense religious controversy, Anglicanism was marked from the start by an ability to hold opposing Catholic and Protestant tendencies together in a wise and generous spirit. Rooted in the earliest formularies of faith, it was able to withstand many passing theological disputes. As disagreements threaten once again to separate one Christian from another, here is a succinct and timely reminder of the core beliefs and values that unite all Anglicans so powerfully. What Anglicans Believe is ideal for new and seasoned but weary believers. A refreshing and inspirational guide, it is arranged in four parts: The Faith - what we believe The Source of the Faith - the famous 3-legged stool of Scripture, reason and tradition The Order of the Faith - how our worship and mission reflect our beliefs The Character of the Faith - how our history equips us to deal with new challenges

What Anglicans Believe An Introduction Press Reviews

'In line with being An Introduction to what Anglicans believe, the result is satisfactory, balanced and carefully constructed ... As a scholar and priest who has worked within four differing Anglican provinces, Wells is well-placed to offer some useful insights ... [He] has made a commendable and robust contribution to current Anglican theology and ecclesiology.' -- Revd Dr Maurice Elliott New Directions' Book of the Month - 'This is a good book. Wells writes well, demanding a high level of engagement from his readers ... Answering the question what do Anglicans believe? is an almost impossible task, since the answer is either too simple or too complicated. What Anglicans Believe comes as close as any new book could do to answering the question in a balanced and interesting way.' -- Ian McCormack
