Ask Phillip - Why Are You Anglican?

Why are you an Anglican? Phillip Jenson gives three reasons: theology, mission and (in his Sydney-based situation) culture. He discusses each one of these in turn, saying his is Anglican by conviction as he agrees with the theology expressed in the Anglican, Book of Common Prayer and 39 Articles, that Anglicanism gave rise to evangelicalism because of its theology of justification by faith alone and the authority of scripture and that finally, Anglicanism has had a huge impact on Sydney's culture; in schools, in welfare and in setting up the Moore Theological College.
