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." In 2013, we remembered the publication of the "Heidelberg Catechism" and the influence of Reformed theologians in England, including Heinrich Bullinger's Decades. For 2014: Tyndale's NT translation. For 2015, John Roger, Rowland Taylor and Bishop John Hooper's martyrdom, burned at the stakes. Books of the month. December 2014: Alan Jacob's "Book of Common Prayer" at: January 2015: A.F. Pollard's "Thomas Cranmer and the English Reformation: 1489-1556" at: February 2015: Jaspar Ridley's "Thomas Cranmer" at:

(Wikipedia): Rev. Dr. Philip Edcumbe Hughes

One of my very revered and honoured Professors who left his very personal and deep mark on this student.  He had very serious scholarly credentials.  It showed in the classroom but also "while walking in the way."  I remember, rather humorously one night following class, him saying, "Time to go home and read some Jesuit casuistry in Latin." (He had an M.A. in the classics.)  He chuckled in that quiet way.  He also was a serious, devout, and pious Anglican Prayer Book man.  He was "just one of those few men" one encounters, remembers, and gives thanks for in this Christian pilgrimmage.  He was this student's Ezra.
