What is Anglicanism?

There are many associations that come to mind. Whether it is the buildings, the unique history, the prayers, or church government, often we emphasize one aspect against others. Is the Anglican church a Protestant church with distinctive characteristics, or a Catholic Church no longer in communion with Rome?

In Anglicanism: A Reformed Catholic Tradition, Gerald Bray argues that some theological trajectories are more faithful than others to the nature and history of the Church of England. Readers looking to understand the diversity, nature, and future of Anglicanism will be helped by Bray’s historical examination.

Praise for Anglicanism

Gerald Bray writes in the spirit of J. I. Packer and John Stott and has gifted the church with an unrivaled brief introduction to Anglicanism. Deo gratias!

–Mark Bowald, professor of theology, Grace Theological Seminary

Gerald Bray's helpful survey of the history and historic formularies of the Anglican tradition succeeds, on the one hand, in capturing the many-splendored character of Anglicanism, while demonstrating on the other that it is "Reformed Catholicism"—a Reformation church within the ancient Catholic tradition.

–Joel Scandrett, assistant professor of theology at Trinity School for Ministry and editor of To Be a Christian: An Anglican Catechism
