He was author of Catholic Orthodoxy and Anglo-Catholicism, as well as editor/publisher of The Orthodox Catholic Review, a journal on Orthodox Christianity from the Western-Rite perspective.
J.N.W.B. Robertson, a scholar of the Church of England, published an English translation of the Orthodox Divine Liturgies.
