It includes a Foreword by the present Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams. The revised schedule with expanded subjects;
Nov. 1: The Reformed and Catholic Church of England and its expansion to America

Nov. 22: Since WWII adjusting to a growing unbelieving culture

Further note: Our Parish Library holds many wonderful classics for Episcopalians, and it would reward anyone to look over our collection. There is no better introduction to the Christian Faith than Bishop N. T. Wright’s Simply Christian. C. S. Lewis’ Mere Christianity is a great classic from WWII. A 3rd book is Alister McGrath’s I Believe. The latter two authors are from Northern Ireland.
