Editorial Reviews

The Anglican Vision … provides a general overview of the Episcopal Church: its origins, history, beliefs and worship, and distinguishing qualities. As such, it would be a strong basis for inquirers' or adult confirmation programs. … The Anglican Vision is really an introduction to the Episcopal Church, and quite a good one. At less than 150 pages, it is brief yet meaty in content
Sewanee Theological Review
Griffiss does a fine job of portraying the wisdom inherent in treasuring the old, discerning the merely customary, and embracing the virtues of the new.
Virginia Seminary Journal
Anglican theology, as Griffiss describes it, draws strongly on tradition, yet it is open to change and its ultimate purpose is liberation through Christ for individuals and communities. The Anglicanism he advocates is mature enough to forego brash certainties, and to be open to ambiguity, doubt, and questioning.
From the Publisher
Throughout, the author has recounted his own journey in faith, and here he speaks as a late 20th century man as much as a scholar. As one whose own journey parallels his, I found the account readable and persuasive. More to the point, it makes Anglican life and worship accessible to those who have come newly to our household. the Rt. Rev. Arthur E. Walmsley
