Reformed Churchmen

We are Confessional Calvinists and a Prayer Book Church-people. In 2012, we remembered the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer; also, we remembered the 450th anniversary of John Jewel's sober, scholarly, and Reformed "An Apology of the Church of England."

Pollard's "Thomas Cranmer and the English Reformation: 1489-1556" at: February 2015: Jaspar Ridley's "Thomas Cranmer" at:

The Compromise of J. I. Packer

This video is about 60-minutes and it is worth every minute of it--our sense is this: Packer is an under-analyzed compromiser. The volume of his writings obscure the gross offensiveness of Packer's gross strategic and tactical errors. In review of the northern and southern kings of Israel and Judah, great men fall and sin.

Analysis of the E.C.T. STATEMENT

In 2008 Packer wrote an endorsement for a book called 'Creation or Evolution: Do We have to Choose?' by Denis Alexander. The book advocates theistic evolution and is critical of Intelligent Design.

He was ordained a deacon (1952) and priest (1953) in the Church of England
