To Be a Christian: An Anglican Catechism

Which has been produced by The Anglican Communion of North America:The Anglican Church in North America

The Catechesis Task Force is pleased to announce that To Be a Christian: An Anglican Catechism is now available in PDF and Microsoft Word format.

The Catechism was unanimously approved for use by the College of Bishops on January 8th, 2014.

This catechism (a text used for instruction of Christian disciples) is designed as a resource manual for the renewal of Anglican catechetical practice. It presents the essential building blocks of classic catechetical instruction: the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Ten Commandments (the Decalogue). To these is added an initial section especially intended for those with no prior knowledge of the Gospel. Each section is presented in the question-and-answer form that became standard in the sixteenth-century because of its proven effectiveness. Each section is also set out with its practical implications, together with biblical references.

Access the Catechism here.

I see Dr J.I. Packer was involved. Worth checking out.

The Congress of St Louis Recordings

Bishop Chandler Holder Jones points out the historic recordings of The Congress of St Louis :

The Congress was arguably the seminal event in the formation of the Continuing Anglican Church movement, and was certainly one of the most important events in the contemporary history of Anglicanism…

The Archaeological Survey of Israel

Which is a fantastic archaeological site by the Israel Antiquities Authority.

Dr Aren Maeir (HT) notes:

Dr. Ofer Sion, who is the head of the survey department at the IAA, sent out an email today from which I first saw the excellent website of the Archaeological Survey of Israel. On this site (here is the Hebrew version and here is the English one [which is still listed as a beta version]), you can get online versions of 83 survey maps that have been published so far, including those that were published in hard and electronic forms. There are maps, photos, pottery plates, and most important, accessible summaries, and hard data, from all these maps.

Do check this out – it is an outstanding resource!

That it is! Enjoy.
