The Church of England: What it is and what it stands for by Roger Beckwith.
This study considers the origins of the Church of England and the doctrines it stands for. "This, then, is the Church of England, and what it stands for. Is it not a church that we should be thankful to belong to, proud to commend to others, and bold to defend against its enemies, whether from without or from within?"
Roger Beckwith was attracted to the Church of England by the Prayer Book and by Anglican church buildings and church music and at Oxford University, was finally won to Christian discipleship. He joined Dr. Jim Packer at Latimer House Oxford in its work of research and writing, and advising Synod members. He later became warden of Latimer House. During his time at Latimer House, he also taught Liturgy at Wycliffe Hall for over twenty years and looked after the little parish of Wytham for six. For twenty years he served on the Anglican-Orthodox Commission. In his writings, Roger Beckwith has concentrated on Doctrine, Worship, the Jewish background to the New Testament, and Ecclesiastical Affairs (especially Anglican).
