WELCOME TO CONTENDING ANGLICAN!

This is a blog about Anglicanism, the historic witness of Christian faith which took its distinctive form at the English Reformation and which has now spread worldwide to become Global Anglicanism.

Sometimes “mere Anglicanism” has been caricatured as “milquetoast Anglicanism,” which, as Bishop Colin Buchanan has quipped, “conceives that fudge is better than principle.” For every Obadiah Slope or Vicar of Bray, however, there are Anglicans who have put on the whole armor of God and contended for the faith, even unto death. True Anglicanism is the Church of Thomas Cranmer and Janani Luwum.

Please note that this blog accompanies my new book The Global Anglican Communion: Contending for Anglicanism 1993-2018. This book is currently available through Anglican Liturgy Press (an offprint of Anglican House Media Ministries) and will be available by Pre-order through Amazon, including a Kindle edition.

If this is your first time to this blog, let me suggest you visit the About Page for more details.
