In this first volume to the New Church's Teaching Series James Griffiss provides an introduction to the Anglican tradition. He focuses especially on Anglicanism's ability to hold together theological continuity (especially the emphasis on the Incarnation) with social and cultural change. After discussing the Episcopal Church today and the ways in which it has changed over the past fifty years, Griffiss shows how the distinctive Anglican approach has been lived out in its history, spirituality, mission, worship, and approach to Scripture. Throughout, the book stresses the place of Anglicanism in the late twentieth century and its ability to be both flexible and traditional in rapidly changing cultures.
The Anglican Vision is intended for wide parish use, including adult education, parish forums, inquirers and newcomers classes, and study groups throughout the church year. It includes a study guide, list of resources, and suggestions for further reading.

Here's what you say about us...

James E. Griffiss is editor of the Anglican Theological Review and the series editor of the New Church's Teaching Series. An Episcopal priest and theologian, he has taught systematic theology and several Anglican seminaries in North America, including Hashota House, the Church Divinity School of the Pacific, and Seabury-Western.

Throughout, the author has recounted his own journey in faith, and here he speaks as a late 20th century man as much as a scholar. As one whose own journey parallels his, I found the account readable and persuasive. More to the point, it makes Anglican life and worship accessible to those who have come newly to our household.

Griffiss does a fine job of portraying the wisdom inherent in treasuring the old, discerning the merely customary, and embracing the virtues of the new.
Sewanee Theological Review

Anglican theology, as Griffiss describes it, draws strongly on tradition, yet it is open to change and its ultimate purpose is liberation through Christ for individuals and communities. The Anglicanism he advocates is mature enough to forego brash certainties, and to be open to ambiguity, doubt, and questioning.
