“Anglican History” a New Article for Logos.com

I was recently honored with the opportunity to write an introductory article on Anglicanism for the Logos.com “Word by Word” blog. Here’s the introduction:

Anglicanism is a religious identity claimed by millions of faithful Christians across the globe. In fact, the Anglican Communion is the third largest Christian communion of churches after Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy. It is a tradition tracing its lineage to the Church of England—although many Anglican churches today are either in broken communion with the mother church or in no communion at all.

It’s nearly impossible, therefore, to define Anglicanism in a way that everybody will find satisfying. This is probably because Anglicanism is made up of several essential characteristics, each of which is considered the defining hallmark by some—but not others. Only a view of the whole, with all the essential pieces in place, can offer us a meaningful definition of Anglicanism.
