Reformation Anglicanism: A Vision for Today's Global Communion

Edited by Ashley Null and John Yates III.

Conceived under the conviction that the future of the global Anglican Communion hinges on a clear, well-defined, and theologically rich vision, the Reformation Anglicanism Essential Library was created to serve as a go-to resource aimed at helping clergy and educated laity grasp the coherence of the Reformation Anglican tradition.

With contributions from Michael Jensen, Ben Kwashi, Michael Nazir-Ali, Ashley Null, and John W. Yates III, the first volume in the Reformation Anglicanism Essential Library examines the rich heritage of the Anglican Communion, introducing its foundational doctrines rooted in the solas of the Reformation and drawing out the implications of this tradition for life and ministry in the twenty-first century.

Hardcover. 224 pages.

Reviews

"In light of the current crises of the Anglican Communion, this study of the origins of Reformation Anglicanism is particularly timely. The authors remind us why the Church of England adopted the confessional formularies that have characterized it since the sixteenth century and examine the relevance of these to the modern situation at home and abroad. Everyone with an interest in Anglicanism will benefit from looking afresh at its core principles, and the authors of this volume have done their best to demonstrate how those principles are still meaningful and relevant today."

Gerald Bray, Research Professor, Beeson Divinity School; author, God Is Love and God Has Spoken

"This book sketches some of the Church of England's complex history from early beginnings to the shape of the present worldwide denomination, now about eighty million strong. More importantly, it calls contemporary Anglicans, often awash in doctrinal and moral confusion, to return to the primary sources and evangelical and Reformed doctrines of the English Reformation, if that Reformation is to fulfill its promise."

D. A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School; Cofounder, The Gospel Coalition

"This wonderful book reminds me of what the former archbishop of Canterbury Michael Ramsey said: 'To belittle the witness of the Reformers is to miss something of the meaning of the church of God.' I am so grateful to the authors for producing this book, which will help us to know what it means to be a church of God."

Mouneer Hanna Anis, Anglican Primate of Jerusalem and the Middle East; Chairman, The Anglican Global South

"This is a work that will serve contemporary Anglicanism permanently in helping readers understand--for the first time or much better--that Reformation Anglicanism is simply biblical Christianity. In a time when many churches are doctrinally confused or morally compromised, readers will be encouraged to hold fast to the gospel and to fight against false teaching. I commend this book most highly and look forward to subsequent volumes in the library."

Nicholas D. Okoh, Anglican Primate of All Nigeria; Chairman, The Global Anglican Future Conference
