An Anthology of Anglican Devotion and Theology: As Enshrined in the Book of Common Prayer, the 39 Articles and the Homilies

Jerryl Lowe

$31.99

Paperback

This anthology brings together selections from the sermons and writings of Anglican clergy from the 16th to the 19th centuries. The readings reinforce the doctrines expressed in the Book of Common Prayer (1662), and follow the pattern of the Anglican Church Year from the first Sunday in Advent to the end of the Trinity season, each week of the Year being preceded by the BCP Collect for the particular Sunday.

The Anthology not only provides fundamental teaching on the gospel; it also demonstrates how that teaching should be transmitted. These readings are meant to appeal to both heart and head; to edify, to encourage, and to embolden.

"I am very glad to comment the Rev. Jerryl Lowe's book An Anthology of Anglican Devotion and Theology. The book offers much to the reader and is a tribute to both the compiler's diligence and judgement. To read this book is more than a journey back into an Anglican past. It is a reminder that our own theological concerns, questions, and problems are not specially our own. They are eternal, simply because we are human. Our predecessors in the Faith are ever our teachers because they, like ourselves, are pilgrims. We read such a book as this, not simply to learn about the past, but to meet the eternal. There is much to learn from this book. While it is well and systematically set out, it is a good book in which to browse. The reader stands much in debt to Jerryl Lowe."

This anthology of readings from the sermons and writings of Anglican clergy from the 16th to the 19th centuries, were selected to reinforce the doctrines of the Christian Faith expressed in the Book of Common Prayer (1662).

The Anthology follows the pattern of the Anglican Church Year from the first Sunday in Advent to the end of the Trinity season, each week of the Year being preceded by the BCP Collect for the particular Sunday. The Anthology not only provides fundamental teaching concerning the Christian Gospel, it also demonstrates how that teaching should be taught; it is a manual of doctrine and its manner of teaching. The Anthology is intended to inspire our devotion as expressed in the BCP, and to instruct us in the doctrine of the BCP.

These readings are to affect the heart and head; to edify, to encourage, and to embolden.
