Anglicans Ablaze: There Is Nothing New Under the Sun

Robin Jordan's critique of the Anglo-Catholic direction of the Reformed Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church in North America:

In his article, “Scripture, Tradition, and the Deposit of Faith,” (Virtue Online), REC/ACNA priest Victor Novak presents an Anglo-Catholic reinterpretation of Anglican identity that has gained popularity in some quarters of the Reformed Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church in North America in recent years. The views that Novak expresses are the opinions of one school of thought in Anglicanism. They do not represent a historic consensus of Anglican thought on the matters in question.

The notion that Anglicanism represents a “western Orthodox” tradition is relatively recent in origin. It is traceable to the nineteenth century Tractarian leader and theologian, Edward Bouvrie Pusey. Pusey maintained that Anglicanism constituted a third Catholic tradition alongside Eastern Orthodoxy and Roman Catholicism. Novak may be described as a modern-day Puseyite.
