Product Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

Church of England Newspaper
"This is quite a delightful book for its personal insights (Dorothy Sayers drove a motorbike and chain-smoked), and useful for its broad selection of men and women. The biographies are short in themselves, but the addition of thoughts, book extracts and prayers from the 'glorious companions' makes this a useful book."

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"Glorious Companions is more than a concise history of Anglicanism; it is also a brilliant demonstration of the evolving nature of Christianity and convincing testimony of its spiritual vigor."

Library Journal
"A very substantial but simply written view of notables in and of the Anglican-Episcopal spiritual communion since the days of Thomas Crammer... including John Donne, the Wesleys, Evelyn Underhill, and Madeleine L'Engle. . . This volume should interest Anglicans and non-Anglicans alike."
