Reviews - What do customers think about The Study of Anglicanism?

A Valuable, Dense Collection  Jan 7, 2008
The articles that make up this collection come from credible scholars and offer the reader an astounding crash course on the development of Anglican thought in a variety of areas. It considers belief and practice as they are devoloping within Anglicanism's history. Densely written and organized, it is for folks who want more than simple answers, but aren't ready to read Hooker for themselves. Suitable for college and seminary reading as well as for ordination studies.
An amazing source of information about Anglicanism  Oct 1, 2007
This book gave me a tremendous amount of information about the history of the theology of the Church of England, the Episcopal Church in the United States, and to a lesser extent, the rest of the Anglican Communion. I am a life-long Episcopalian, and was fascinated to see that many of the things I consider as hallmarks of the modern Episcopal Church, such as the critical (non-literal) interpretation fo the Bible were there from the earliest theology of the Church of England Under Elizabeth I. Highly recommended!
Exhaustive Overview of Anglicanism  Jul 3, 2006
The title of this book says it all: The Study of Anglicanism. Sykes, Booty, and research assistant Knight, have edited and assembled a very academic work that is sure to be a difficult read for many people. But for those who really want to study Anglicanism, the essays contained in this work are a gold mine, written by scholars from a variety of segments of Anglicanism.

If you are coming to this book with little Anglican background, make sure to first read Part I, The History of Anglicanism. The information in these first two chapters will go a long way to helping you understand the material in the later essays.

There is practially nothing to quibble about in this book; it provides as exhaustive an overview of Anglicanism as anyone could reasonably expect from one book. A mini-library in itself, it should prove invaluable to anyone really wanting to learn about Anglicanism. Given the different factions within Anglicanism, it undoubtedly won't please everyone, but that's to be expected.
A great help  Dec 6, 2005
I have found this book extremely helpful in understanding Anglicanism. I am new to the Episcopal Church and this book really helped me in discovering the difference (and similarities) from my previous tradition. I am currently in seminary and found this book to be a great supplement for my Systematic Theology course.
Loads of information  Apr 3, 2000
If you are looking for an indepth history of the Anglican church, this is it. It not only explores the past to present, but also issues about the future of Anglicanism. Not light reading.
