Commentary

Scripture, theology, ministry, mission.

Committing unity to print

By David Richardson. What the Covenant has to offer the churches of the Communion is an instrument of unity and mission which, in good Anglican fashion, steers a middle path between centralism and juridical structures on the one hand and unfettered license and mutual irresponsibility on the other. But it does more.

Belonging together

By Geoffrey Rowell. All ecclesiology is about our belonging together, and our belonging together in Christ.

Catholicity outweighs autonomy

By Paul Avis. The future of the Anglican Communion is in jeopardy. The Anglican Covenant is the only credible proposal that I am aware of to help hold this family of churches together.

Embodying a self-aware Anglicanism

By Matthew A. Gunter. Confessions serve as symbols of belonging which give particular communities a shared identity. As such, they are sources of cohesion and delineate communal boundaries.

An ardent longing

We need the Anglican Covenant. It sets forth the most plausible and coherent picture of the Church that we have seen, carefully knitting together our founding documents and the developed consensus of the last century.
