"[By] Richard Giles".
Originally published in English under the title: How to be an Anglican. Norwich: Canterbury Press, 2003.
"These notes were written with some particular friends in mind: a group of adult confirmation candidates from a variety of backgrounds -- some Roman Catholic, some Pentecostal -- who found themselves at home in the parish I served, and who wanted to know more about the Anglican middle way. But whoever or wherever you may be, I hope that by reading this little book you will find something of value in our Anglican approach that might encourage you to keep us company on our journey home to God." -- Intro., p. 2.
"We are always open because we know only too well our constant need of God's mercy. Cast iron certainties are inappropriate when we can never be sure how God will choose to surprise us next. It might be in a carpenter's son from a one-horse town called Nazareth, or in the stranger in need of a bed for the night, or in the person that others want to banish from the church. One can never be too sure: best to remain open, always". -- back cover.

Includes bibliographical references and index.
"We are a group of theologians who work mostly in a university context, and in theological education. .... Out of a basic belief that the Church of England should be able to move to a position of greater toleration of faithful, stable gay relationships, we want to lay out for those outside the academy, as well as within it, reasons why we believe this is a debate worth having in the church. It is the conviction of the authors of this volume that, for all that this is an issue on which there are serious matters of principle on both sides, and for all that the symbolic nature of the confrontation of Christian faith and modernity is very acute, this is not actually a decisive question for the survival of Christian faith itself, nor for the survival of the Church of England and of Anglicanism more widely". -- Intro., pp. 2-3.

Notes
"[By] G.W.H. Lampe, Ely Professor of Divinity in the University of Cambridge".
"We cannot deny that the Sacrament of Holy Communion is a means, and, one any adequate doctrine of the Eucharist, the primary means, of all grace. Communion with our Lord in his Body and Blood is, indeed, the goal of holiness; but it is also the primary means toward the attainment of holiness, for in it we receive the grace which sanctifies. It is likewise the goal of unity; but also the means towards the attainment of unity. .... Intercommunion between those who intend to seek the grace of unity is not an optional extra but a paramount obligation. It is not merely something permissible; it is an urgent and compelling duty. Growth into unity is bound to be gradual, but unless growth together in sacramental worship is at the heart of the process there is not hope that it can ever be achieved. Reunion is the coming together of worshipping communities in the Spirit of Christ. It is not an act of ecclesiastical diplomacy or of academic theological debate". -- p. 19.
"The [Simeon] Booklets are written authoritatively and from the standpoint of a reasonable and Anglican form of Evangelicalism". -- back cover.
Author was a Church of England priest.

"My first and foremost debt is to the dean and faculty of the General Theological Seminary, who kindly invited me to deliver the Paddock Lectures in October of 2003. ... This small book is an elaboration of those Paddock lectures. .... The book attempts to underline the complexities and difficulties that attach to understanding scripture and its authority not merely for Anglicans but for all Christians. But it is my hope that it will suggest positive ways forward. The ancient rabbis said that just as the grit in the oyster is what makes the pearls, so the difficulties in scripture are what produce the pearls of exegesis. Attending to them is a way of digging ever more deeply into the mysteries of God's word". -- Acknowledgements.

"Editor: Richard Holloway, Bishop of Edinburgh". -- cover.
Includes bibliography ( p. 96-97) and index..
"This book considers the three main tendencies of Anglicanism (Evangelism, Catholicism and the Middle Way). After looking at doctrine, priesthood, episcopacy, establishment, politics, internationalism, ecumenism and comprehensiveness, it predicts that all three tendencies will survive and may be joined by others. The conclusions and pointers will often be found controversial. But the author believes that `Anglicanism will remain a loose international conglomerate of Christians believing many different things. Its unity will be constantly strained: its members will be constantly tempted to disunity, but not above what most of them are able to bear. Anglicanism has the experience of containing differences, the tolerance of theological adventurousness, the confidence and prestige born of long existence, to carry this off. And truth, that elusive commodity made up of as many parts as matter itself, will be served as a result'." -- Back cover.

These lectures, delivered by the Bishop of Chester, on the occasion of the centennial of St. John's Church, Detroit, are the first in this series". -- Foreword.
"I would ask the reader to bear in mind the purpose of the lectures and to try to re-create the setting in which they were delivered. My objective was to express in a very small compass the splendor of the Anglican Communion in its Catholic and Reformed tradition. I was speaking to the man and woman in the pew and seeking to convey to them both the joy and responsibility of their membership in that part of the Catholic Church to which they have given their loyalty. The lectures were delivered on five consecutive week-days in April 1959, in the Church of St. John, Detroit". -- Intro.
