Product description

The Vocation of Anglican Theology seeks to present a contemporary Anglican theology rooted in its sources but reaching into the future.

A range of leading Anglican theologians - Rowan Williams, Ellen Charry, Kenneth Stevenson, Mark Chapman, Kathryn Tanner, Richard Norris and Christopher A. Beeley - reflect on key theological subjects such as Christology, ecclesiology and eschatology.

This text is ideal for use in courses on Anglican theology. Indeed, it is hoped that it will prove to be the standard text for courses in Anglican theology throughout the Anglican Communion.

In one volume, the student can meet Anglican theologians from the past and in the present, with the opportunity to learn and to inhabit a common Anglican future

Product Reviews

'This is a quite wonderful book. It deftly achieves three things. It offers lucid and absorbing accounts of the great themes of Christian theology, in an Anglican voice but an ecumenical spirit; it brings from the treasure house succinct and apposite readings suitable for contemporary study; and it presents a compelling and inspiring invitation to join the vocation that is the Anglican experiment in seeking to be both Catholic and Reformed. Ralph McMichael has drawn together a perfectly conceived manual for a person discovering Anglican theology and an ideal stimulus to those rediscovering their roots.' --Sam Wells, St Martin-in-the-Fields

'This collection both feeds and sparks the theological imagination by bringing together the distinctive voices of some contemporary Anglican theologians discussing constituent components of theology, each illustrated by selections from major sources from the Early Church to the modern period. As a whole, the book gives a renewed definition of theology: a way of living into God that entails the whole person. This is manifest in the selection of sources: hymns, poems, sermons, prayers, all shaping faith that seeks understanding. A rich and broadening collection for anyone who is intrigued by the Anglican way of Christianity.' -- Ellen K. Wondra, Bexley Seabury Seminary Federation, Chicago        

'It is often said that Anglicanism has no tradition of systematic theology, and yet in the last decades theologians of the Anglican communion have been notable leaders in the regeneration of this important genre. In this timely and attractive volume the Anglican perspective is brought to bear on some of the central themes of Christian faith, unfolding a rich historical heritage. This book will be an invaluable aid to students, ordinands, laypeople and seekers alike' -- Sarah Coakley, University of Cambridge
