For the inaugural episode of Miserable Offenders, Andrew and Jesse read and discuss the first portion of a classic essay on the character of Anglican theology.
The Spirit of Anglicanism is an essay by Paul Elmer More which appears in the volume Anglicanism: the thought and practice of the Church of England, of which More was co-editor. This volume is a compilation of excerpts from original works from a variety of 17th Century Anglican divines. More’s essay provides a sort of guide to the logic behind the composition of the volume and also provides More’s own interpretation of Anglicanism itself and especially the importance of the 17th century.
NOTE: The essay on Anglican “comprehensiveness” by J. I. Packer that Jesse mentions can be found here.Subscribe on iTunes
