Product Description

In this classic work, John Booty, noted author and biographer, explores major themes in the history of the Anglican Church by telling the stories of historic Christians whose lives exemplify these themes. Drawing on the lives of important church figures, from Thomas Cranmer, who wrote the Book of Common Prayer in the 16th century, to Janai Luyum, who served the Christians of eastern Africa as archbishop in the 20th, Booty uses their stories as springboards to understanding the overarching themes of each epoch of Christian history.
Understanding these themes, the author insists, is crucial. "Christians are involved in the centuries of triumph and tragedy of the church; it is their history. Remembering the course of events from the beginning until now, with the center of history in the historic Jesus illuminating that which went before and that which followed after, Christians derive wisdom and power and inspiration to carry on." Here Booty presents a history that is a highly readable and distinctly Anglican account of how the Church developed from the earliest days until the present.

Publisher's Description

This unique approach to understanding the history of the Anglican and Episcopal Churches was originally part of the 1979 Church's Teaching Series. Rather than writing a simple chronological history of the Church, John Booty, one of the premier experts in church history, explores the subject thematically. He addresses four major areas:
-- the Church and its essential nature
-- how a weak and faltering Church can be renewed and reformed
-- how Christ, culture, church, and state relate to one another
-- the Church's historical and current understanding of its mission

Throughout, Booty concentrates not only on the history itself, but how that history relates to today's Church. Excellent for course work, or for lay study.
