This wonderful compendium of religious biographies offers a look inside the hearts and minds of significant shapers of Anglican spirituality over the past five centuries---Thomas Cranmer, John Donne, George Herbert, John Wesley, Dorothy Sayers, C. S. Lewis, Madeleine L'Engle, and many more.

Covering twenty-nine of the most influential Anglican figures from the sixteenth century to the present, Richard H. Schmidt deftly chronicles their lives and work while capturing at the same time the deep personal faith that they have managed to communicate so powerfully to the rest of the world.

These icons of the Christian faith include not only bishops and scholars but also homemakers, poets, novelists, and teachers. Each chapter contains a brief biographical sketch of its subject, a selection of short, representative quotations from his or her writings, and several questions for reflection and discussion.

Written in a personable style that brings readers into direct contact with some of the church's most admired witnesses, Glorious Companions will be valued both as a collection of insightful biographical information and as a lasting source of inspiration.

Richard H. Schmidt is editor and executive director of Forward Movement Publications. He has also served as an Episcopal parish priest in West Virginia, Missouri, and Alabama and as managing editor of the magazine The Episcopalian.

On September 13, 1896 Pope Leo XIII published the Bull known as Apostolicae Curae in which he declared Anglican Orders "absolutly null and utterly void". The Anglican Archbishops of Canterbury and York delivered a "Responsio" Saepius Officio, hotly contesting the judgements of the Bull. These documents have loomed over Anglican-Roman Catholic relations for the past century. In this book, experts from both Communions and from both sides of the Atlantic look again at Apostolicae Curae and reassess it in the changed circumstances of today. It also contains English translations of the original two documents.
