It is the responsibility of all Christian people to cling to the apostolic faith 'once for all delivered to the saints' (Jude 3). The apostolic word is the word of God. To depart from this word is to depart from God's form of faith and God's way of life. Our elders, ministers, and bishops have a responsibility to 'hold firm to the trustworthy word' (Titus 1:9). In their consecration, Anglican bishops have taken responsibility to pass on faithfully the de[psit of apostolic teaching, and to admonish and exhort others to do the same. To depart from biblical teaching is a severe dereliction of duty which has disastrous spiritual consequences for the people under their pastoral care. This is the serious nature of the contemporary 'crisis.'
This collection of essays responds to The Windsor Report from several directions: legal, rhetorical, and theological. They are written by Australian evangelicals, who share a common belief that the future of Anglicanism ought to be shaped more and more by 'the faith once for all delivered to the saints.'
