Essential Anglican Study Series

It has become rather commonplace to suppose that Anglican Christians care mostly about liturgy and not very much about theology. While there are some good reasons for that characterization, it’s not historically accurate. Anglican traditions exhibit a rich and diverse history of theological reflection. One of the contributions of that history has been the insistence that how Christians think and talk about God makes a critical difference in what Christians believe. In that regard, Anglicans have consistently turned to the communal nature of theological reflection, or the importance of conversation in how we “do” theology. In this course we’ll engage in that task of communal theological reflection and by doing this work together we’ll touch on some of the major doctrines in Christian theology, including revelation, Christ, Trinity, Spirit, and church.

The Very Rev. W. Mark Richardson, Ph.D., is president and dean of Church Divinity School of the Pacific (CDSP). He spent a decade as professor of theology at General Theological Seminary in New York City. He is an Episcopal priest, scholar, lecturer and theologian who has written extensively on faith and science, same-sex relationships and evolution. He is founder and director of the Science and Spiritual Quest Project of the Center for Theology and Natural Sciences, the moderator of the Trinity Institute conferences in New York City and the senior theological advisor at Trinity Wall Street.
