EVANGELICAL CATHOLICISM


Tue Free Church of England is the oldest ‘continuing’ Anglican Church in the world, pre-dating most of the Provinces of the Anglican Communion. Tue present work traces its origins to the 18th century Evangelical Revival and to 19th century efforts for Christian unity centred on the concept of Evangelical Catholicism, examining previously unexplored links with both George Whitefield and Old Catholicism. Recent developments, including the impact of the GAFCON movement and recognition of FCE Orders by the Church of England, are described and a vision set out. Tuis is essential reading for Anglicans concerned about an orthodox future for their tradition.
