Oxford History of Anglicanism, Vol 3

I am happy to share with you all that volume 3 of the Oxford History of Anglicanism is now available. My own chapter is ‘Anglican Mission in the Middle East up to 1910’.

Volume 3 focuses on the partisan era and Anglicanism’s expansion into a global community up to 1910. Volume 4 concentrates on Anglicanism in the contemporary period and its history after the 1910 EdinburghWorld Missions Conference.

More info on volume 3 can be found at the OUP website and much of my own chapter can be read at books.google.

I was born in Montana and grew up in Colorado and Puebla (in Mexico). I completed a BA in philosophy at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) and then an MA in theology at St Mary's University (also in San Antonio). Later life took me to Jordan where my wife and I studied Arabic, to Israel where I helped found a seminary, and to Scotland for doctoral work, among other places. I'm highly interested in the interactions of Islam, Christianity and secularism in modern contexts. My main areas of research for my PhD in divinity were religious conversion from Islam to Christianity, contextual theology, and the shari'a's treatment of apostates. I've also published research on global Anglicanism and the history of Anglican mission in the Ottoman Empire. I've had the pleasure of teaching in many places over the years: from Costa Rica to Turkey, and Kenya to Tunisia. Presently, I live in San Antonio where I am lecturer and researcher in Muslim-Christian relations at The Christian Institute of Islamic Studies (ticks.org), and sometime adjunct professor of theology at St Mary's University.

  1. Thank you for sharing this news. I’ve recently been reading ‘Pastor on the Nile’, the biography of Bishop Llewellyn Gwynne. I’m particularly interested in the work he carried out amongst the Copts in northern Sudan. Does your chapter look at the relationship between the Episcopal Church and indigenous churches in the Middle East?

    1. Hello Edmund, my research is not primarily on the Episcopal Church (USA), it is on the various missions in the Middle East, Persia and Constantinople. Most of the missionary work was carried out from the C of E. The missionary episcopate in Constantinople of Horatio Southgate was the one effort born out of the DFMS that I cover in this chapter.

      I know of only book specifically on the topic of the Episcopal Church (USA) and the Middle East. It was written by Charles T Bridgeman but is quite dated. You can read my review of it here and decide if it is worth trying to track down somewhere: https://www.academia.edu/1482546/Book_Review_THE_EPISCOPAL_CHURCH_AND_THE_MIDDLE_EAST_by_Charles_Thorley_Bridgeman

      1. Many thanks for your reply. I’m primarily interested in the relationship between the Anglican Church/CMS and the Coptic communities in Egypt and the Sudan.

  2. There is a bit of information on this topic in the chapter. I also published an article in Anglican and Episcopal History (journal) on the Anglican cathedral in Cairo which may be of interest to you. You can find that article here: https://www.academia.edu/25459663/_Small_and_Unthreatening_in_Cairo_Trinity_Friday_at_All_Saints_Cathedral. Perhaps in the bibliographies of the two works you will find additional resources for your research. Do let me know when you have a chapter, thesis, essay or book on the topic complete. I would enjoy reading it if possible. Finally, have you read the biography of Temple Gairdner? I know he had multiple contacts with the Coptic community.
