Evil and the Justice of God, by N. T. Wright, is reviewed in the Church Times reviewed by Alec Graham. 'Thus it is on forgiveness that he concentrates in suggesting ways in which the justice of God may be effective in public policy and in individual lives; for, as he says, forgiveness "has a claim to be at the very centre of the Christian gospel".'
How on Earth Did Jesus Become a God?, by Larry W. Hurtado, is reviewed in the Church Times by Rt Revd Dr Peter Forster. 'Although remarkable and essentially unparalleled, the worship of Jesus, for its adherents at least, did not detract from traditional Jewish worship of God the Father. It was the distinctively Christian way of offering worship to the one true God. The exalted Jesus is the "Son" or the "image" or the "Word" of God.'
The True Church Principles of Restoration to the Episcopal Office, by John Henry Hopkins (1854). After the suspension of B. T. Onderdonk from his office as diocesan bishop of New York, the Episcopal Church grappled with the question of whether and how he could be restored to office. In this lengthy treatise, future Presiding Bishop J. H. Hopkins argued that he could never be restored.
The Work of Christ in the World, by George Augustus Selwyn (1855). This is series of four sermons preached by the first Bishop of New Zealand, George Augustus Selwyn (1809-1878). He examines four topics with characteristic insight: Christian Work the Best Interpreter of Christian Doctrine, The Work of Christ in England, The Work of Christ in the Colonies and The Work of Christ among the Heathen.

Generation. A new site from the Church of Canada that promises to be lively; it's well done and will be a good resource for the Anglican youth of Canada. Young people may grow into this, but it's a site, regardless of the banner, that appears to be for young adults. The site might provide a guide to others hoping to create a web place-to-meet. (Cross-listed in Canadian resources.)
Breaking the Mould of Christendom: Kingdom Community, Diaconal Church and the Liberation of the Laity, by David Clark, reviewed in The Church Times by Martyn Percy. A less than self-conscious 'argument for the radical overhaul of a system that appears to lack self-consciousness (that is, Methodism). It is about de-traditionalising the Church, and getting back to Kingdom values and practices.'
God's War: A New History of the Crusades, by Christopher Tyerman, reviewed in The Tablet by Jonathan Riley-Smith who summarizes his own review: 'This is a serious, competent and well-written survey of the existing state of knowledge, with respect to the narrative of the crusading movement.'
The Old Enemies: Catholic and Protestant in Nineteenth-century English Culture, by Michael Wheeler, reviewed in The Church Times by Bernard Palmer. 'It is the purpose of this engaging study to examine why these ancient divisions [Roman Catholic and Protestant], originating in Reformation times, should have cut so deep and lasted so long; and how 19th-century writers — novelists and poets, historians and essayists, theologians and pamphleteers — reinterpreted them.'
A Vindication of Their Majesties Authority to Fill the Sees of the Deprived Bishops, attributed to Edward Stillingfleet (1691). In this pamphlet, an author believed to be Edward Stillingfleet (1635-1699) argues for the crown's authority to replace Nonjuring bishops who refused to take the Oath of Allegiance to King William. This document in particular was occasioned by the refusal in 1691 of William Beveridge (1637-1708) to become bishop of Bath and Wells, the see vacated in that year by Thomas Ken.

No longer Catholic: Gary Kriss, writing for The Living Church (Milwaukee), notes that the US Episcopal Church has recently re-emphasised that it is a Protestant church. (Unlike 19th-century England, the US will probably not prosecute and imprison priests who persist in Catholic liturgical practises.)
Women Bishops: A Response to Cardinal Kasper. Tom Wright, Bishop of Durham, and David Stancliffe, Bishop of Salisbury, respond to Cardinal Kasper's invited address to the House of Bishops meeting. You'll find a link to Cardinal Kasper's address.
