Noted This Week

WHENEVER WE LEARN about a web site that we haven't previously listed, we'll note it here. Sometimes such sites are brand new and sometimes they have been around for a while without our having noticed. We list two (sometimes three) weeks’ worth, cycling the old ones off each week. As they disappear from this page, you'll find the links moved to their natural home categories in our resource pages. We normally do not mention on this page redesigns or remakes of sites that are already in our listings.

If you can't find something that was once here, you can look in our archives or try the AO search engine. It searches our entire site and also many important official Anglican sites worldwide. If you still can't find it, please let us know.

If you would like your website listed at Anglicans Online, please use this form to tell us about it.

Theological Colleges
St Barnabas College, Adelaide (Adelaide)

Book Reviews
In the Church Times, Ruth Ward reviews Stephen Cottrell's Do Nothing to Change Your Life. 'The message of this book is a call to self-centred 21st-century people to pause and rediscover themselves “in relation to other people and the world”. Cottrell is at his most convincing on the “vanities of our present culture”, and the resulting “slavish cycle of self-worship and self-loathing”, and “the absolute necessity of becoming eccentric”.'

In the Church Times, Sarah Foot reviews The Personal Correspondence of Hildegard of Bingen. 'The Hildegard who emerges from these pages is not just the visionary musician with whom many will be familiar, but a politically adroit abbess with a sharp tongue and a fiery temper. She may frequently have described herself as a poor little form of a woman and a fragile vessel, a feather sustained by the breath of God — but she is as arresting when angry as when transported by the Spirit. Not an easy woman, but one made more accessible by this illuminating collection of her writings.'

Also in the Church Times, Nicholas Orme reviews Susan Wood's The Proprietary Church in the Medieval West. 'Mrs Wood’s book is a definitive survey of the involvement of kings, lords, and great churchmen with monasteries and parish churches in western Catholic Europe from the Roman Empire to the Investiture Controversy.'

Biblical Resources
The Bible Project: Artist Brian J. Turner Paints the Bible. 'Brian J. Turner has delighted visitors to his gallery in Exeter with critically acclaimed paintings of biblical texts and everyday events. His major Cathedral Tour of Biblical Narrative Paintings, which visited eight cathedrals around the UK, was a huge success. Now, in a remarkable new project, this Devon artist journeys through the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, offering to audiences a treasure trove of paintings that challenge and inspire.'

Worth Noting
Christian Unity: Christopher Wells writes in The Living Church (Milwaukee) on a recent document from the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. 'Obviously Rome’s ecumenical lexicon remains a stumbling block to many Christians [...]' 'The bottom line, as always, is love — and faith, and hope.'

In defense of the first sacrament: Derek Olsen writes thoughtfully for the Daily Episcopalian on Communion without Baptism, or CWOB. 'However, the message of the Gospel is not simply a message of hospitality alone. Scripture also insists upon the reality and the responsibility of the covenant community.'
