Church History
Life of Robert Machray, Archbishop of Rupert's Land, Primate of All Canada, by his nephew, Robert Machray (1909). Robert Machray (1831-1904) was born in Scotland and appointed Dean of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge in 1859. He left this office in 1865 on his consecration as second Bishop of Rupert's Land, a diocese which then included what are now Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, the Northwest Territories, Yukon and parts of northern Ontario and Quebec. Machray played an important part in civil and religious events during a significant period in western Canadian history, reorganizing missionary work among indigenous people and Canadians of European descent. He became Metropolitan of Rupert's Land in 1875 after the division of his large diocese, and was chosen as first primate of the Church of England in Canada in 1893.

Peril and Adventure in Central Africa, Being Illustrated Letters to the Youngsters at Home, by the late Bishop [James] Hannington. With Illustrations from Original Sketches by the Bishop, and a Biographical Memoir (1886). James Hannington (1847-1885) was consecrated first Bishop of Eastern Equatorial Africa in 1884. Hannington and many of his companions were martyred on October 29, 1885 while en route to conduct missionary work in Uganda. His feast day in several churches of the Anglican Communion is kept collectively with the Martyrs of Uganda on October 29. This volume includes the text of a number of Bishop Hannington's letters to his nieces and nephews in England, as well as a number of his drawings made in Africa.

That They All May Be One: The Call to Unity Today, by Walter Kasper, is reviewed in the Church Times by Mary Tanner.

A "virtuous pagan" looks at the priesthood. 'Minna Proctor had always thought of religious people as fanatics. Then her father told her he wanted to become an Episcopal priest -- and she decided to find out why'. The article is at Salon.com.

What would Falwell do? 'After years of near-invisibility, religious progressives want to regain their vanished political clout. But with conservatives claiming a monopoly on godliness, it's going to be a struggle of biblical proportions.' The article is at Salon.com: see note above.

Worth Noting
Anglican blogs: Blogs are possibly too volatile an area for Anglicans Online to begin a section and keep it up to date; however, if blogs are a part of your Internet life, this is a large list of Anglican-related blogs.

Paul and the Hermeneutics of Faith, by Francis Watson, is reviewed in the Church Times by Lionel Wickham. 'This is a good, perhaps even an important, book. I could characterise it by saying of it that here Augustine and Luther, not to mention the Apostle himself if Professor Watson is right, strike back.'

Radical Compassion: The Life and Times of Archbishop Ted Scott, by Hugh McCullum, is reviewed in the Church Times by Peter Price. 'This biography takes the reader beyond the life of the man, into many of the issues and personalities that influenced Scott’s own life and times. It is a biography for a leisurely read.'

In Trouble Shared, Sarah Hillman rounds up a group of children's books that tackle the hard questions of life and death with children.
