Added to the Resources page: Bp. Forbes’ “An Explanation of the Thirty-Nine Articles”

July 4, 2011

Previously I have mentioned a book by Bishop A. P. Forbes, who was Bishop of Brechin in the Scottish Episcopal Church in the nineteenth century – An Explanation of the Thirty-Nine Articles.  This text has now been added to the Resources on the Thirty-Nine Articles page as I do think it is worth a read.  Bp. Forbes was a Tractarian and friend of men such as Pusey, to whom the book is dedicated.  By no means do I agree with all of this work – but it is interesting to see how the Tractarians interacted with the Articles of Religion, and how one can see how someone such as Francis Hall is a true heir and descendant of that group.  (I am not certain one could say that about all who claim such a lineage today.)
