      Some thoughtful reflections on what it is that might make Anglicans distinct from others while emphasizing everything it has in common with Christians more broadly (and all who seek the Truth). I can't say I learned anything I didn't already know, but I found it a useful reminder in a nice tight source. There are some good nods to history shaping our current face, but also some explanations for why it has not remained as it once was. I am grateful for this book.

      Clear and accessible overview of the Episcopal Church. Griffiss covers the development of Anglicanism in America and outlines the belief and practice of the Episcopal Church.

      "Another area in which our sense of identity and authority arises from our reliance upon the Incarnate Christ is our willingness to allow philosophy, science, and the arts to inform and even interpret our belief." Raised a Catholic and now a new Episcopalian I found this freedom and acceptance refreshing in Faith. This book was very helpful to me in understanding the Anglican tradition, how it has evolved over time, and how we can bring about change in society and the church.

      Griffiss inaugurates the The New Church’s Teaching Series, put out by the Episcopal Church USA. Griffiss gives a very brief introduction into the history and beliefs of the Anglican tradition, specifically in America. Griffiss central theme is located in the doctrine of the Incarnation. Very good introduction to both the Episcopal Church and the series

    5. Sam says:

      A great overview of the philosophy of Anglicanism that undergirds its theology. It's a good primer for those new to the Episcopal Church, but also a revelatory document for those of us who've been around awhile.

      3.5 stars. This seems like an accurate overview of Anglican history and beliefs.I read this as "a book written by an Anglican" for 2016 #vtReadingChallenge

    8. Adam says:

      A good introduction to Anglican identity, although it reads with a bit of a centrist-conservative bias.

    9. Laura Benbow says:

      A little dry

      Part of the church's new teaching series from about 15 years ago.
