Abstract

ATR/99.4 Book Reviews 843 MacCulloch’s book is revisionist and apologetic in nature. It compels the reader to reexamine long-held assumptions in the face of a fresh and persuasive interpretation. In naming and confronting the polemical agenda of prior historians, MacCulloch mounts a vigorous and convincing defense for the foundationally Protestant nature of the Anglican tradition. This book will unsettle many readers precisely because it requires confronting the un- comfortable reality that much that one has been told about the nature of Anglicanism may not be so. Where there once was certainty, ambiguity now abounds. Yet, MacCulloch does not want the reader to lose heart. His final essay offers these encouraging words to the reader: “That’s the glory of the Anglican tradition. It is a double helix, intertwining two mutually antago- nistic stands of Christianity which elsewhere bitterly clashed in the Refor- mation: Catholic and Reformed” (p. 360).
