The Rev. Justin Lewis-Anthony will be the new deputy director of the Anglican Centre in Rome.
Lewis-Anthony, who will take up his new role in February, has previously served as precentor and cathedral chaplain at Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford; rector of St. Stephen’s Church, Hackington, in the Diocese of Canterbury; associate dean of students and director of Anglican Studies at Virginia Theological Seminary; and associate fellow at the Oxford Centre of Ecclesiastical and Practical Theology.
His books include Circles of Thorns: Hieronymus Bosch and Being Human (Bloomsbury, 2008), If You Meet George Herbert on the Road, Kill Him: Radically Re-Thinking Priestly Ministry (Bloomsbury, 2009) and You Are the Messiah and I Should Know: Why Leadership Is a Myth (and Probably a Heresy) (Bloomsbury, 2013).
“I am delighted that Justin Lewis-Anthony is joining the team at the Anglican Centre,” said Archbishop Bernard Ntahoturi, director of the Anglican Centre in Rome. “He brings a wealth of experience, which will be invaluable.”
The Rev. Marcus Walker, whom Lewis-Anthony succeeds, will become rector of St. Bartholomew the Great in the City of London.
