June 05 2013 By virtueonline Honoring the Martyrs of Uganda

Many of these young martyrs had become Christians through the missionary work of the "White Fathers," the Roman Catholic Society of Missionaries of Africa, founded by Charles Cardinal Lavigerie, an ardent foe of slavery and the Archbishop of Algiers. Enough converts were baptized and shared the faith with others that Christianity soon threatened the influence and power of the witch doctors and the Arab Muslims who operated the slave trade in Uganda and promoted Islam to the king.

February 15 2013 By virtueonline Sydney Anglicanism - Michael P. Jensen

How well based are these criticisms? Not at all, argues Michael Jensen. The son of the present archbishop of the diocese (Peter Jensen), the nephew of the influential dean of the cathedral (Philip Jensen), and a faculty member of Moore where he was formed as an Anglican minister, Jensen writes as a true insider. His book is rightly subtitled "An Apology" (that is, a defense).

January 03 2013 By virtueonline A FREE PEOPLE'S SUICIDE - Os Guinness

Guinness points to the current international economic crisis which is due not to hostilities between European countries, but within them - perhaps most notably, a refusal on the part of one generation to curtail current benefits or entitlements even if it bankrupts those around them - which is as much a matter of character as of economics.

February 02 2012 By virtueonline WESTERN MICHIGAN: A Sidelined Cathedral

The images in The Sacred Castle capture moments of high energy and quiet ritual. In one, Black speaks to a packed nave. The Sacred Castle is light on text. Other than Black's one-page introduction, it offers only dust-jacket copy that quotes the Rt. Rev. Charles E. Bennison, fifth bishop of Western Michigan, who envisioned the cathedral as part of a larger complex of buildings.

December 28 2011 By virtueonline Building a Church to Last: The Miracle in Pawleys

In 1997, as the crisis of faith and leadership was evolving within The Episcopal Church, Chuck Murphy invited 30 theologically conservative Episcopal bishops, priests, and lay leaders from around the country to a meeting at All Saints, Pawleys, in order to discuss the crisis and to discern what if anything could be done to combat it. A new day was about to dawn for Anglicanism in North America. As time showed, it would take many forms.

December 28 2011 By virtueonline A Born Again Episcopalian: The Evangelical Witness of Charles Pettit McIlvaine

From an Anglican perspective the life, faith, and work of McIlvaine exemplify the main features of the legacy of the English Reformers bequeathed in the Cranmerian liturgy and the Thirty-nine Articles of Religion, hence this precious volume could well serve as a handbook to current enthusiasts of the same tradition of Augustinian doctrine and devotion.
