‘This superb book will stand in equal honour with so many of the masterpieces to which it refers.’
The Rt. Rev. David L. Hicks, Bishop Ordinary, ACNA Diocese of the Northeast & Mid-Atlantic/ Chancellor of Reformed Episcopal Seminary, Blue Bell, Pennsylvania/Chairman, ACNA Holy Orders Task Force.
‘This work may be considered a primer for all who would understand the Anglican way, and it should be on the reading list for anyone aspiring to ordained ministry in the Anglican Church.’
The Most Rev. Anthony A. Mikovsky, Prime Bishop – Polish National Catholic Church, Archbishop of the Union of Scranton
‘It is important to understand that several Churches, like the Free Church of England and my own PNCC, although small, have confronted the missteps of the larger Christian traditions and have held firm to the convictions and faith of the early Church. … I highly recommend this work to those seeking to better understand not only the Free Church of England (and her communion partners throughout the world), but also to understand what is truly at stake in many of the divisive issues of the present day.’
Bishop Martyn Minns, Deputy Secretary/ Executive Director Global Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans 2011-2014.
‘This book will be a source of great interest and encouragement for all those who hold to a vision of Anglicanism as most recently expressed in the words of the Jerusalem Declaration.’
The Right Revd Michael Nazir-Ali, President, Oxford Centre for Training, Research, Advocacy and Dialogue.
‘A fine piece of Anglican ecclesiology. … This book is too important only to be serving the purpose for which it is written – it is not simply about the Free Church of England. Rather, it should rather be seen as a charter for Anglicanism, around which orthodox-minded people might gather.
The Revd Dr James I. Packer, Board of Governors’ Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, British Columbia.
‘A broad-based, erudite, even momentous book …. Skilfully argued, with apostolicity as its unifying theme, it is a very enriching, challenging, and even compelling read … the good things that we have here are exciting to the last degree.’
The Rt. Rev. Ray R. Sutton, ACNA Dean of the Province and Ecumenical Affairs.
‘Bishop John Fenwick has given us in one single volume an Ecclesiology faithful to the Gospel and the Scriptures, the Ancient and Undivided Church, and the important English Reformation as understood to be a return to the Word of God and historic Church, while not revising or innovating the faith once delivered. … This volume therefore is the perfect companion to the revered Archbishop Michael Ramsey’s classic work, The Gospel and the Catholic Church. ‘
Rev. Canon Dr. John Senyonyi, Vice Chancellor, Uganda Christian University.
‘Bishop Fenwick’s book is invaluable for an age that is gradually ripping historical Christianity apart, and which is in danger of bequeathing to the next generation a Church without the Gospel of Christ. … I unreservedly endorse this book. I pray that it will bless many and cause us to walk faithfully in “the faith once delivered to the saints”.’
The Rev’d Dr. Henry L. Thompson III (Laurie), Interim Dean President, Trinity School for Ministry.
‘An easily accessible volume that will be invaluable to many. … A creative vision for weaving the trajectory of the past into the hope and possibilities of the future.’
Bishop Trevor Walters, Western Region Suffragan Bishop, Anglican Network in Canada.
‘Here is that literary rarity: a most scholarly work that is, plain and simply, also a “good read.” … It is a vision of the future that I can heartily commend to any and all who seek unity within Anglicanism.’
