The Institute of Anglican Studies at Samford University’s Beeson Divinity School will host its first Anglican Theology Conference Sept. 25-26, under the theme “What is Anglicanism?”

Speakers for the conference include:

  • Mouneer Anis, Bishop of Egypt
  • Foley Beach, Archbishop of the Anglican Church in North America
  • Gerald Bray, research professor at Beeson Divinity School
  • Barbara Gauthier, editor of the newsletter Anglican News Update
  • Timothy George, dean of Beeson Divinity School (Baptist observer)
  • Gerald McDermott, professor of divinity and director of the Institute of Anglican Studies
  • Andrew Pearson, dean of Cathedral Church of the Advent in Birmingham
  • Ephraim Radner, professor of historical theology at Wycliffe College in Toronto
  • Rusty Reno, editor of First Things (Roman Catholic observer)
  • Eliud Wabukala, retired Archbishop of Kenya
  • John Yates III, rector of Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Raleigh

“Anglicanism is at a pivotal moment, but the shape of Anglican orthodoxy is nevertheless debated,” McDermott said. “This conference will help provide a forum for reflection and theological renewal as pastors and leaders propose a new way forward. Theologically interested Anglicans will not want to miss this.”

The conference will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Sept. 25, and end at noon on Sept. 26. The cost is $100, and a $25 discount is available before June 1.
