Overview

Why do so many evangelicals flock to liturgical traditions today? An updated edition of the classic study.
 
With new testimonies from evangelicals who have joined the Anglican fold and discussion of the emerging/missional church movement, and an update to the conversation by evangelical scholar and pastor Lester Ruth, this thoughtful and engaging book reviews Anglicanism’s six great gifts: mystery and awe, Christ-centered worship, sacramental reality, historical identity, participation in catholic traditions and holistic spirituality.
 
In this edition, Ruth adds fresh stories from evangelicals who have followed Robert Webber’s footsteps on the Canterbury trail, along with new essays that highlight the diversity of Anglican expressions today.
