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:

Mr. (Rev. Dr.) Wayne Pearce: "John Spottiswood: Jacobean Archbishop and Statesman"

Just ordered after discussion with the author, Mr. (Rev. Dr.) Wayne Pearce. Mr. Pearce did his doctorate on Mr. (Archbishop) John Spottiswoode, a Scots Episcopalian. Also, Mr. Spottiswoode embraced and confessed the 1560 Scots Confession and was theologically, anthropologically, Christologically, soteriologically and sacramentologically...he was Reformed and Calvinistic. OH NO! A Reformed, Calvinistic...and worse....Scots Episcopalian. Oh oh! Anyways, this 350-page study is based on Mr. Pearce's doctoral work (a demanding thing in a Scottish University). More to follow.
