Roughly 80 million Christians identify with the Anglican tradition, making it one of most dynamic and vital expressions of the Protestant church in the contemporary world. For the vast majority of Anglicans–especially the tens of millions located outside the West–the contemporary tensions and debates within the Christian faith mean the time has come for a renewed commitment to the text of scripture and engagement with our treasured theological traditions. This course of study focuses on these impulses within Anglicanism, seeking to equip future leaders with tools in biblical study, theology, and history, and encouraging their engagement with contemporary ecclesial concerns.
