Anglican Reformation - 21st Century
The Anglican Communion is in a Quandary
Is Jesus the way, the truth, the life? Or do all paths lead to God?
Are we saved by grace? Or are we all divine?
Oil and water do not mix.
The crisis is upon us! What are our options?
-Exposes the conflict
-Traces the history
-Promotes a way forward
We are living through an extraordinary time of transition.
As Christians today, we find ourselves in the midst of a rapidly changing world.
The very foundational beliefs of our faith are constantly being challenged.
Various religions and spiritualities vie for entrance into our hearts and churches.
The values of the spirit of the age press upon us to accept all paths to God as one.
Those of us who are part of the Anglican Church have grappled with the conflicts which have come upon us in this new era.
We are not alone. Every Christian church and denomination must now face questions concerning the certainty of their faith.
Pressure is mounting to conform, to compromise, or at the very least to keep quiet.
This of course is not possible for any genuine follower of Jesus Christ.
If we can see the context through which we are living, then we can act with confidence in all that God calls us to do and to be.
This book examines the underlying precepts of the spirit of the age and strikes a vital contrast with authentic Christian belief.
What is Anglican Re-Formation about?
1. It is a call to action for the Anglican Church to deal with the problem that is growing in our midst.
The problem of a new pseudo-Christian movement that retains the language of Christianity,
but in fact is promoting something completely different.
2. A historical reflection on how our current situation has developed through time.
3. The Transformation of the Anglican Communion into a new Anglican Fellowship of the Christian church,
and how this transformation can bring together the various streams of Christianity now separated in the world at large.
Jack Estes is a parish priest who seeks to 'rouse the sleeping giant' of Episcopalians and Anglicans to a crisis of immense significance: two opposed worldviews nestled in the same 'comprehensive' church. Estes's cri de coeur will resonate with ordinary laypeople who may wonder what the future holds for their beloved church."
