FH25: Anglican Identity

In this era of church history, an abiding question revolves around Anglican identity: what are its essential contours, what the primary markers, and what the historic examples. We wanted to wait to cover this topic because it is a delicate question in which it is easy to err on one side or the other.

In this, one of the first conversations on this topic, we wanted to bring on Fr. Charles Erlandson and give us his take. He is a professor and Department Chair of Church History at Cranmer Theological House, and maintains a prolific presence in blogs and on social media. He has been a long-time writer of the blog called “Give Us This Day”, first at http://giveusthisdaydevotional.com/, and now more recently on Patheos, at http://www.patheos.com/blogs/giveusthisday/

He also posts frequently, as @FrErlandson, and on Facebook. Most recently he has been appointed the Director of Communications at the Cranmer Theological House.
