The Continuing Anglicans by Michael F. Gallo

The Continuing Anglicans

Credible Movement or Ecclesiastical Dead End?

by Michael F. Gallo

Although the story of the so-called Continuing Anglicans is relatively unknown outside certain conservative Anglican (Episcopal) circles, it is one which deserves wider attention. It is an example of one particular approach in the contest for orthodoxy, and there are lessons here, both positive and negative, for all orthodox-minded Christians. It provides a revealing test case relevant to similar battles which are either being waged now or will soon be waged in other churches. What is more, the experience of Continuing Anglicans provides a fascinating, if troubling, study in catholicity and cooperation (or lack thereof): how well can Christians who take their faith seriously work together?
