This book seeks to explain the ways in which Anglicans have sought to practice theology in their various contexts. It is a clear, insightful, and reliable guide which avoids technical jargon and roots its discussions in concrete examples. The book is primarily a work of historical theology, which engages deeply with key texts and writers from across the tradition (e.g. Cranmer, Jewel, Hooker, Taylor, Butler, Simeon, Pusey, Huntington, Temple, Ramsey, and many others). As well as being suitable for seminary courses, it will be of particular interest to study groups in parishes and churches, as well as to individuals who seek to gain a deeper insight into the traditions of Anglicanism. While it adopts a broad and unpartisan approach, it will also be provocative and lively.
The Logos edition of Anglican Theology connects it with the rest of the books in your library. Open the texts that Chapman references and read them side by side. Get definitions for difficult theological terms with the dictionary lookup tool. Scripture references link to your preferred translation.
