A brief biography and appreciation of the Rev. Dr. Frank A. Peake a prominent historian and writer about the Anglican Church of Canada. "Frank Peake was a dedicated priest, a stimulating educator, a tireless church historian who relished every discovery and a delightful conversationalist. His multiple publications leave an enduring contribution to an understanding of the life and mission of the Anglican Church of Canada from its beginning to the present (p. 72)". Dr. Peake was also "one of the founders of the Canadian Church Historical Society and was the Honorary President of the Society for many years" (p. ).
Includes bibliographic endnotes. "One of the more important developments in the post-war Church of England has been the increased adoption of the eucharist as the main Sunday service, displacing the traditional emphasis upon Matins."
It was Hooker's intention in "Laws" to write a document which reflected in its form and content the possibility of a reasonable Church. He believed the Church of England to be such a church. He argued that the polity and liturgy of the Church was defined, enlivened, and sustained through God's presence and work through the sacraments.
The addition by the Western Church of the clause filioque (and of the Son) in the Nicene Creed, and the doctrine of the procession of the Spirit which the clause teaches, have been contentious issues in Christian history. The Episcopal Church's attempt to deal with the two issues separately by removing the clause on historical grounds has been highly artificial, and is unlikely to satisfy the Orthodox Churches. The issues of historical and theological truth need to be dealt with in tandem.
