Overview

A prominent critic of the Oxford movement, George Stanley Faber was one of the most influential Anglican theologians of the nineteenth century. The Selected Works of George Stanley Faber (7 Vols.) includes his most authoritative works derived from his lifetime of scholarship in patristic studies. With his comprehensive knowledge of the early Church Fathers and their texts, Faber’s books deftly articulated the anti-Roman Catholic Church position unpopular with many of his contemporaries. His books, upon publication, would often lead to contentious debate among both Anglican and Roman Catholic theologians.

In the Selected Works of George Stanley Faber (7 Vols.) you will find his work on the doctrine of election, the doctrine of justification, the doctrine of regeneration, and the doctrine of transubstantiation, as well as his two volume treatise on the nature of the Trinity. Faber’s astute observations on these topics stem from his insightful elucidations of the early Church Fathers, including Ignatius, Polycarp, Origen, Tertullian, Augustine, and more.

Taking issue with both Arminianistic and Calvinistic doctrines of election, Faber argues that predestination was first cited by St. Augustine and not taught by the first fathers of the Church. Exploring the Old and New Testament, Faber’s exploration of free will and faith is thought provoking.
